What Coffee Means to Ticos

Coffee is integral to Costa Rican culture and identity and deeply ingrained in the country’s history and economy. Locally known as “café,” coffee is one of the country’s primary exports and a significant source of income for many Costa Ricans.

San Jose has many coffee shops and cafes, which serve as social gathering places for locals and visitors, reflecting the country’s coffee culture. Here, friends and family come together to catch up, share stories, and enjoy their favorite coffee.

In addition to its social importance, coffee also plays a significant role in the country’s economy. Costa Rica has a long and proud history of coffee production, with some of the world’s finest coffee farms in the lush volcanic soils of the Central Valley. 

Many small-scale coffee farmers have been able to support their families and communities thanks to the country’s thriving coffee industry.

Costa Rican coffee is much more than just a beverage. It’s a symbol of heritage, an essential economic driver, and a source of pride for the country. Whether enjoyed in a cozy café or on the family coffee farm, coffee holds a special place in the hearts of Ticos.


What Variety of Coffee Is Produced in Costa Rica?

Costa Rica is known for producing high-quality Arabica coffee, one of the world’s most widely consumed and prized coffee varieties, enjoyed by coffee connoisseurs around the globe.

Within Arabica, Costa Rica is particularly renowned for its specialty coffee, which is grown in the country’s Central Valley and processed using unique methods that bring out its distinctive flavors and aromas.

Some of the most common Arabica varieties in Costa Rica include Typica, Caturra, Catuai, and Villa Sarchi. Each variety has unique characteristics, such as a flavor profile, acidity, and aroma, and farmers often specialize in growing one or two specific types.

In addition to traditional Arabica varieties, Costa Rica is home to Geisha coffee. This rare and highly sought-after variety is prized for its complex flavor profile, floral aroma, and delicate acidity. 

Geisha coffee is grown in small quantities in the country’s Tarrazu region and is often sold at premium prices due to its rarity and high quality.
