Costa Rican coffee has always had a timeless, romantic appeal. Clean, sweet, and classic, the best Costa Rican coffees showcase an elegant simplicity, a profile that “tastes like coffee”-- only better! Whenever we’re in the mood for an easy-to-love cup, we’re drawn to the Costa Rica Reserve from Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie. This medium-roast cup opens with a rich aroma, full of cocoa and toasted hazelnut, a subtle woodsy spice. The body is creamy and smooth, like caramel, or nougat, and the chocolate hazelnut flavors carry into a long, silky finish. But the true romance of this cup goes way beyond its sweet flavors.

The story behind this coffee is like something out of a movie. Jim Stewart is one of Seattle’s original coffee gurus: in the 1960s, he founded Seattle’s Best Coffee, blazing the trail of specialty coffee in the Pacific Northwest. He even made it a point to travel to Latin America, buying his beans directly from the growers-- in the 1970s, well before the direct-trade movement, this was unheard of. During these travels, he met Luz Marina Trujillo, who was in the process of revitalizing her small Costa Rican coffee farm. Long story short: Stewart bought her beans, and created his coffee empire; Luz Marina transformed her high-altitude Terrazu farm into a paradise of sustainable, top-quality Costa Rican coffee; and the two got married! Today, Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie occupies the same building on Vashon Island where Stewart originally roasted, and their Costa Rican Reserve is still sourced through the same partnership. Now that’s a coffee romance that stands the test of time.

Nutty, rich, and oh-so-smooth, Costa Rican coffees have always been a beloved standard of specialty coffee, and Terrazu region produces the best of the best. With its classic flavors of melted chocolate and hazelnut creamer, Vashon Island’s Costa Rica Reserve ticks all the boxes for a sweet, elegant Costa Rican cup. Reserve your bag today, and enjoy this well-loved staple of Seattle's enduring romance with specialty coffee.

Available in 12oz bags, as whole bean or freshly ground, while supplies last.

★★★★★ ★★★★★ Not my fav, but not bad either. I think it may be good in a french press.
jo
★★★★★ ★★★★★ I brew it by accident a little weak at times and should've finished it already but did not bring it when I was at daughter's house a couple of weeks. I wanted to have something good in the morning when I got home. It is caramel like and smooth and a little earthy and even strong was good. I prefer it brewed kind of medium but not too strong because I drink a whole 8 cup press in the morning.
