The Q graders in our cupping lab scored this coffee 86<BR><br>The Tarrazú region is the nursery of Costa Rican specialty coffees. It is situated in the country’s highlands, where the slopes of its mountains dominate the landscape and coffee plantations are found at over 1,500 meters above sea level. Beneficio San Diego is the most modern (and one of the top three largest) mill in Costa Rica. It was established in 1888 and has since specialized in the world famous Tarrazú and Tres Ríos areas. Beneficio San Diego takes pride in striving for ever increasing efficiency and quality standards, whilst at the same time working strongly with producers to ensure good community relations and sustainable production for years to come. Volcafe Way is shifting the focus of technical assistance from that of merely complying with sustainability rules to one of creating a business mentality in the farmer, creating prosperity and better economic conditions for the farmer.
