Coffee

Some of the best coffee in the world is grown in the high elevation areas near San Jose, and also in the mountainous areas of Cartago Province in Costa Rica. The Arabica, or hard bean, is the sole variety of bean grown there, and the natives know their coffee. Travelers should be aware that there are commonly two ways to package and sell coffee in Costa Rica. Café tradicional is typically sold in a clear plastic bag and contains roughly 10 % sugar (often with a bit of corn meal), and is generally the lowest cost coffee. Café puro is the ideal choice for the coffee aficionado. It has no additives, and usually comes packaged in a foil bag.
