Cafe La Semeuse Ground Single-Origin Costa Rica coffee is made from 100% Arabica beans from Costa Rica. A superb high-altitude coffee grown at 4,950ft, in rich volcanic soil this coffee is evocative of the crisp clean air of its birthplace. Couple its high-altitude source with the high-altitude roasting method in Chaux-de-Fonds Switzerland and you have a coffee sent down from the heavens.
The aroma is made up of complex fine aromatics developing tones of exotic fruits and just a hint of muskiness.
The taste starts on the tongue as a pleasant full bodied harmony of flavors with a slight tartness that finishes smooth and refined, leaving elegant overtones of cocoa on the palate.
The folks at Cafe La Semeuse call this coffee “Heady”! Available in whole bean and ground 8.8oz bags.
