4Coffee production in Costa Rica is so important that laws have been passed to ensure its species and quality.In 1989, the production of Robusta Coffee was prohibited due to its subpar quality. Coffee farmers have also stopped producing Catimores coffee due to poor quality issues. In fact, Costa Rica is the only country where executive decree only allows the Arabica species to be grown. The Arabica species actually contains the least amount of caffeine but the most desirable flavors. There are two varieties of Arabica: Bourbon and Typical, and 8 sub-varieties known as cultivars. All of this has resulted in Costa Rica winning numerous international contests and certifications.Costa Rican Coffee5In 2012, a Costa Rican coffee became the most expensive coffee sold in US Starbucks stores. Customers happily payed $7 a cup and $40 a bag. Stores sold out in less than a day.The coffee was called “Costa Rica Finca Palmilera” and was made from a rare Arabica cultivar called Geisha which is only found in Central America and is notoriously difficult to grow.It was grown in the canton of Tarrazú, which is in the province of San José, on a farm owned by the Sánchez brothers who dedicated about 7 acres of their coffee farm solely to growing Geisha coffee.Costa Rican Coffee6Costa Rica is the world’s 13 largest producer of coffee - producing over 1.5 million bags every year.Holy cup of Joe, that’s a lot of coffee. Even more impressive, 90% of these 1.5 million bags are exported each year. That’s 1.35 million bags of Costa Rican Coffee set free onto the world each year, helping to pump money into the country’s economy. It’s easy to see why coffee production makes up 11% of Costa Rica’s export revenues. Costa Rica’s small farmers play the biggest role in coffee production, with nearly 90% of all coffee farmers cultivating on less than 12 acre farms.Costa Rican Coffee
