Costa Rica – La Playa
About This Coffee
La Playa was conceived with the cool Costa Rican vibe in mind. Easygoing and laidback, this coffee plays out well as an accessible single-origin choice for filter and espresso. Expect to find apple, chocolate, and almonds in this coffee, with a fresh herbal touch.
Tarrazu, Costa Rica, is a region known for its high altitudes and superb quality coffee. La Playa means ‘beach’ in Spanish. What’s the connection? While it may seem somewhat incongruous to conjure ocean vibes when talking about coffee production, in this case, ‘La Playa’ refers to a popular local hangout, on the shores of a nearby riverbank where families from the surrounding community spend their free time.
Roaster suggestion :
This coffee is full-bodied so start at 18 grams with 37 grams in the cup, brew it over 27 seconds for espresso, adjust from there for your preferred taste.
