Tasting Notes

Costa Rica's coffee acids are incredibly clean and refreshing - in fact, that's precisely what makes a Costa Rica cup sing.

Combined with wonderfully thick toffee and a hint of nut, caramel and chocolate, it's a combination that works remarkably well.

The fruit elements are subtle, yet they offer more than enough complexity in the finish to round a cup off perfectly.

We enjoyed this coffee in milk-based espresso. It's immensely satisfying on just about every level.

You can easily drink this as a black - the sweet acids make it delicious.

Description

Rich, sweet, unique.

Costa Rica has always set a benchmark for coffee farming excellence and matched perhaps only by Kenyan farmers in their care and attention to quality.

Historically, coffee played a significant role in building Costa Rica's domestic economy.

Costa Rica aims to remain the quality leader against the competing Central American origins of Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador.

Whilst all the other Central American coffee-producing countries have significantly lower cost structures and price advantages, it only drives Costa Rica to compete strongly on quality, not price.

Why Costa Rica is a clear leader in coffee quality

An early innovator in segregating quality lots, Costa Rica grades coffees by separating and isolating the best rates.

All these extra efforts enable Costa Rica to market superb, traceable estate coffees to a vast and growing demand from coffee roasters worldwide.

Costa Rica also pioneered many different processing methods.

One of these processing methods -"honeyed"' - is now used at many other coffee-growing origins to help produce cleaner, sweeter coffees.

Taste is king

A good Costa Rican coffee will be sweet, clean and bright in the cup.

Many coffee roasters find this combination, and specifically the brightness, desirable.

However, these days, with the high prices commanded by Costa Rica coffees, only some roasters can afford to use Costa Rica coffees in their blends.

The largest segment for quality Costa Rican coffee is the single-origin market, just like our JustFreshRoasted store.

Costa Rica coffees are great in milk-based espresso, where the clean, lively acids match beautifully to the milk in a flat white cappuccino or latte.

Costa Rica produces a rich toffee, caramel and milk chocolate beverage.

We love how Costa Rica coffee produces clean, sparkling acids that dance on your palate.

Handy brew guide from Justfreshroasted to help you achieve the best tasting coffee
Brew recipes are a guide only

Espresso brew recipe

Espresso brew recipes assume professional or commercial equipment (machine in grinder) are used.

For domestic (consumer) grade, please ensure you adjust the suggested values accordingly.

Dose - 19 - 21 grams

Yield - 38 - 42 grams

Brew Time - 28 - 32 seconds

Ratio - 1 : 1.7

Tips - Costa Rica has beautifully sweet acidity making it versatile across both black and white brews.
As a hard, dense bean that is washed, please be mindful of the grind setting being fine enough to extract all the oils.
It can be run either tight or open - works well.

At JustFreshRoasted coffee we roast the beans to a beautiful medium depth for maximum flavor, taste and enjoyment
How we roast your coffees

light, medium or dark

Each coffee in our store has a unique roast profile carefully engineered and continuously updated to achieve the best balance of flavor, body, complexity, acidity, sweetness and finish.

It's a never-ending process with new lots arriving almost weekly along with the constantly changing Melbourne weather conditions.

We don't use light, medium or dark as our guide. That's so outdated and quite frankly inaccurate with around 20 shades each of light, medium and dark.

The external or outside color is never a true indicator of a coffee's cup attributes (or performance).

In other words, coffee can appear dark outside but have under-developed internals (sour, flat, weak, thin, etc.) if it was roasted poorly.

Similarly, a light exterior can easily mask or hide internal scorching or invalid roasting profile.

The target for all of our coffees (excluding specific filter roast products that are intentionally roasted lighter) is medium.

Think cafe style and coffee that is best suitable for espresso or traditional brewing devices.

What's critically important to us is that we extract maximum goodness for you to enjoy.

After 20 years and hundreds of thousands of batches, we think our Tier 1 infrastructure, skills and experience surpass the market.

JustFreshRoasted helps explain how ground coffees go stale faster than whole beans and why grinding the coffee just before using is always the best.
did you know about

Ground coffee

Ground coffee will lose around 80% of essential vitality after 15 minutes oxygen exposure. Even ground coffee inside of a sealed, unopened bag will stale considerably within 2 weeks.

Some brewing applications, such as espresso, require roasted coffee in peak freshness to produce a delicious extraction. Other brew methods are less sensitive to the impact of staling coffee.

To ensure freshness, we never hold, store or manufacture any ground coffees. All our coffees are packed as whole beans within 1hr of roasting to lock in freshness.

When a customer orders ground coffee, we take fresh roasted beans, cut the seal, grind, clean and re-seal within 60 seconds. All at the moment your order is packed for dispatch.

We recommend for the best coffee experience to consider purchasing whole beans and grind only enough to brew just moments beforehand.
