Curator's Notes

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.

Roaster's Notes

Luz Marina Trujillo, a third-generation Colombian coffee grower, lives on Vashon Island part time. She transported the techniques, mastered by her family in Colombia, to her farm in Costa Rica. On her Costa Rican farm, she grows a combination of intensive shaded coffee intermixed with natural forest to ensure the preservation of water quality, and she set aside land next to her to help preserve the forest.

"Wonderful, but I ordered it ground & it was delivered whole bean"

"For a medium roast it sure has a strong flavor. A good strong, as you can taste the coffee. I made a flat white, the way I like it and it had body the way I liked it. Look forward to my tomorrow morning cup."

"Great as an espresso. Pairs well with milk in my morning latte"

"Just got this yesterday and had it last in January, now October and it is probably what I thought before, smokey and cinnamon, nutmeg, but scooped out on the plus side. It was a full bodied mug (actually two)."

"I am enjoying this coffee as my morning wake up pot. Smooth and warm. So glad I tried it. "

"I'm giving it a 5 but reviewed it before and this is a late review and I am speaking for my sons who get gifted by me. They like it and I think I sent it before without reviewing it and forget to ask them what they think of the roast each time. I can't remember what they said exactly and I really would like comparing the first try of all these I get for myself and them but never there in the a.m."

"smooth and creamy with good texture. WE enjoyed it in our drip and it was an excellent Costa Rica coffee."
JARRIE 04/04/2021

"The aroma was amazing while I lead brewing in a pour over so I had high hopes. But the taste was much too delicate almost flavorless for me even when changing brewing ratio. Would certainly rate this a very light roast, almost tea like."

"Great. Real smooth and creamy, like milk chocalate and hazelnut cream. Really really creamy."

"A very balanced cup of coffee. Makes my favorite list. Subtle sweetness, but mostly good old fashion breakfast enjoyment."
