Costa Rica has been growing coffee since the early 19th century. They have a long-standing reputation for good quality coffee. They now have many micro mills which means that there is more variety to choose from and different coffees aren't mixed in together. This makes their coffee unique and it's now easier than ever to taste several different coffees from a particular area side by side and begin to see that geography affects the taste.*
The soils of Terrazú have just the right amount of tropical acidity which produces a coffee of extremely unique quality. Coffees from this area have a stellar reputation and are considered a high-quality grade.
