Background story on these beans:
Costa Rican coffee beans are considered among the best in the world. Grown in rich volcanic soil and high altitude make this one the finest coffees in the world and allowing them to be designated SHB-strictly hard bean, the highest classification in the Costa Rican system. The Tarrazu Province, where this coffee is from, has the reputation for producing the most desirable coffee beans in all of Costa Rica.
Tarrazú coffees have a special distinction because they only pick the ripest fruits which are known as the Sangra de Toro (Bulls blood) colored cherries. This level of attention from picking the beans to the processing creates an exceptional grade of coffee.
