Coffees from Costa Rica

Coffee was planted in Costa Rica in the late 1700s, and it was the first Central American country to have a fully established coffee industry; by the 1820s, coffee was a major agricultural export with great economic significance to the population. National output was greatly increased by the completion of a main road to Puntarenas in 1846, allowing farmers to more readily bring their coffee from their farms to market in oxcarts – which remained the way most small farmers transported their coffee until the 1920s.

Main production areas: Tarrazú, Brunca, Guanacaste, West Valley, Central Valley, Turrialba, Orosi

Port of Shipment: Puerto Limón
Export bag size: 69kg
Total number of coffee farmers: about 65.000
