From the intense microclimates of the Central Valley region comes our Poas Volcanic Earth coffee. Known as Costa Rica's pioneer coffee region, the Central Valley has harsher weather changes, which in turn allow coffee plantations to grow high-quality hard beans. That, along with volcano-enriched soils and constant rain, makes for a unique coffee-producing environment, which is transmitted to the surprising cup qualities of our Poas Volcanic Earth blend.

Our Poas blend is grown at Finca La Guaria, which has been owned by the same family for 30 years. Their goal is to produce high-quality coffee while using sustainable and environmentally friendly growing practices. Because of their long history in the business, they are able to produce consistent quality beans each harvest by using the shade-grown technique. La Guaria supports the educational, housing, and nutritional needs of at least 50 families during most of the year, with 250 more arriving during the harvest season. Fair wage practices ensure that each family is provided for and help improve the quality of life for everyone who works on the plantation.

This medium roast blend has a complex flavor profile of earthy undertones mixed with lemon. It also has fruity and floral characteristics that gives it a very sophisticated flavor. It retains a light acidity from the high concentration of minerals of the volcanic soil it grows in, but it is light on the palate and presents itself as an agreeable post-meal coffee that experienced coffee drinkers will appreciate.
