Coffee in Costa Rica
There’s something about that first jolt of caffeine on a lazy morning that stirs the spirit, especially when the flavours are rich and satisfying. In Costa Rica, coffee is as woven into the fabric of life as it is in Italy, although there’s an added bonus here, because this fantastic little South American country also happens to be one of the premier places on Earth where coffee is grown.
Coffee is known locally as the grano del oro – the golden grain. It pulses at the heart of Costa Rican life, so it makes sense to have a quick crash course in the country’s coffee culture before your trip.
