Costa Rica Tres Rios La Magnolia - SHB

Compare this coffee with our other Costa Ricans

What a fitting name for this wonderfully sweet and aromatic coffee! The La Magnolia is one of the finest Tres Rios coffees we’ve ever offered, brought to you by the same people who bring you the La Minita Terrazu. It has a sparkling, clean, lemon-orange brightness with chocolate and nutty overtones that carry thru to the long, complex finish.

The La Magnolia is a beautifully prepped, remarkably well-rounded, exceptionally well-balanced, complex coffee (I’m in danger of running out of superlatives here!). If you’re in search of a special Costa Rican coffee (and even if you’re not), this may be the one.

This coffee causes problems for me. I have to be careful serving it to "strangers" because they tend to come back after that, actually asking for a cup of coffee. Seriously, when my sister had need of home health care, I served the nurse a cup of La Magnolia. Instead of visits every other day, my sister was treated to them EVERY day, first thing in the morning, because the nurse liked the coffee so much. It is truly the best I've ever had and I get nothing but complements on it. Edna in SW Florida

We tried over 7 samples from Coffee Bean Corral, this was by far the best! Friday, someone brought in Starbucks as a 'treat'. It was no comparison to Tres Rios...I took several sips, then had to go back to my own (which I always bring to work). This is balanced perfectly. Nothing really stands out, it is just perfect. Some coffees you can really taste 'fruit' or 'nut'...ok if you like that, but if you want a coffee that is just perfect..not too much nut, or too much spice, etc..this is it! I have had coffee like this from upscale restaurants, they don't tell you where they got it but call it their 'house blend'....well, now I know the name...Costa Rican Tres Rios La Magnolia.

The cleanest and most marvelous cup of coffee you will experience. We found it at a major online green coffee seller and they had it for 2 or 3 years. They then discontinued it even though customers begged them to get it back. I guess they don't care much about their customers, so they lost many! I searched elsewhere and found Coffee Bean Corral who had it AND KEEPS IT in stock!! Thank God! We now buy it here and drink only La Magnolia!!

This our favorite coffee. Rich flavor and a hint of chocolate.

I enjoyed having this coffee in my line-up. It's the kind when that you are saying, "Let's see, what should I roast for tomorrow morning?", it jumps out at you: "I know! I'll roast that citrus/chocolate stuff from Costa Rica." Great in a French Press. Its one of those coffees that gets better the cooler it gets. (Maybe I'll try it iced sometime.) Evan in Lowell, MA

Am I allowed to leave a second review? It's been several years since I left my first review of La Magnolia. Over those years, I've gone through financial woes, serious health issues, emotional problems, a forced move from my home, etc., etc. Because of all this, I stopped roasting my own coffee and existed on what I could afford, although I generally tried to at least get whole bean and grind it daily. Recently I was digging through my storage unit and came across my old green coffee bean container. It's an airtight canister and still had some La Magnolia beans in it. Now, those beans have got to be at least 4 years old, maybe older. However, I located the old roaster and fired up a batch. I didn't expect much out of beans that had been languishing in an un-airconditioned storage unit in SW Florida. However, the aroma reached me first. I could hardly wait the 24 hours' rest that I always try to give my newly roasted beans, but I managed. Barely. As the water seeped through my very cheap Walmart Special coffee maker, the unmistakable aroma of La Magnolia filled my small kitchen. It was like coming home to find an old friend. Still the same fabulous aroma and flavor. I have tried a lot of different coffees, especially since my original supplier dropped this one from their inventory. I found Coffee Bean Corral carried it and I bought it from them for several years. I will be putting in another order for fresh La Magnolia beans next week. There is simply no comparison, no matter how much you pay for those other beans!

Read the reviews for this coffee on this site and 2 others. Could not find anyone giving less than 5 stars anywhere. I've tried it and it's as good as advertised. Beautifully balanced, smooth rich coffee. The only problem is that is tastes too good. Hard to stop at less than 3 cups per day. Great by itself, will now be the base of my espresso blends. If someone is home roasting for the first time, this is the one to try. First crack to second crack, you can't go wrong and will be rewarded with an exceptional cup of coffee.

It's good in a french press, but I think even better in a Chemex (but then, isn't everything?) Smooth, flavorful, clean and classic but with enough fruity notes to make it a great morning coffee.
