Hacienda la Amistad, located in Coto Brus, a canton in the province of Puntarenas, Costa Rica, is owned and operated by Roberto Montero, a third-generation coffee farmer. Roberto’s grandfather first came to the area in the early 1900's as part of a team surveying the border between Costa Rica and the newly formed country of Panama. This organic coffee embodies all the good qualities you look for in a high-grown Costa Rican.

Cupping notes: A brown sugar sweetness with chocolate and a fruity orange finish. Expect a full-bodied Tarrazu zing in your cup.

Pretty good. That’s not meant to be damnation by faint praise — la Amistad is dependable and predictable, but not adventurous. How about this: If you were going to buy green beans as a gift for a roasting novice, la Amistad is a safe bet.

The coffee has a good flavor profile at just past past first crack. My biggest complaint is a high quality coffee at this price point shouldn’t have a lot of small, broken and mishaps beans. I had to hand sort and discard nearly 10% of the beans because the were not fully roasted. Poor sorting and some one doesn’t expect at $8.00 per lb. I doubt I would buy this again as the La Minita is much better for just a bit more $

Not great but drinkable. I have tried four roasts ranging from light medium to medium-dark and was unable to reveal any flavor. I have been spoiled by Kona beans and I measure all beans against the Kona bean, perhaps I am not being fair but I have tried different roasts without favorable results. I guess you get what you pay for, the price for the Costa Rica beans was only about $7.00 per pound and is reflected by its flavor.

This is my favorite Costa Rican. I actually prefer this over the La Minita . There is more of a change to the flavor, body and acidity at the different roast levels. It does have a wonderful finish and the "zing" as stated in the desciption sure is present. When it cools it seems to be even better. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Costa rican coffee.
Costa Rica has produced some fine organics, and this is the best one we've had in the last 4 crop years; it is also my wife's favorite coffee, bar none.
