Coffee Regions: Costa Rica

In Costa Rica the coffee is grown in volcanic and low-acidic fertile soil, conditions ideal for production. More than 80% of the coffee area is located between 800 and 1,600 meters (2,625 feet-5,250 feet) above sea level and in temperatures between 17ºC and 28ºC (62.6ºF – 82.4ºF), with annual precipitation between 2,000 and 3,000 millimeters (79 inches – 118 inches).

The advanced technology that the Costa Rican coffee producers have used for more than 200 years has allowed the plantations to adapt to the characteristics of each zone. Today Costa Rican coffee is grown in 8 production zones: Brunca, Central Valley, Guanacaste, Orosi, Tarrazú, Tres Ríos, Turrialba and West Valley.
