Costa Rica is nestled in the heart of Central America, and is as diverse as it is beautiful. This little country has it all – from mountains and volcanoes to rainforests that buzz with life and coastlines with great beaches and surf. With such an impressive landscape, combined with it’s stable government and relative safety compared to it’s Central American neighbours, Costa Rica is a well established tourist destination, especially for U.S. travellers, and around 1.5 million visitors are drawn to its shores, forests and mountains each year.
The nation’s stability and forward thinking governance means Costa Rica has a much higher standard of living than its neighbours, making it a much more expensive country to visit or do business in. The coffee industry is well regulated by the national body Icafe. Under Icafe’s watchful eye, farm workers are monitored and protected with minimum living standards and widely enforced minimum wages for all employees.
Available in 200g, 450g and 1kg resealable bags made of recycled materials.

I simply love all of Pebble & Pine Coffees. I tend to order the beans and then freshly grind what I need per brew of coffee. It's remarkable how this can even enhance the incredible flavours further.
I use my Smeg coffee grinder so I can choose the fineness of the grind according to the coffe I'm making - from Espresso to cafetire or filter coffee.
Everyone is a winner for me!
this is a pleasant coffee to drink. I prefer it as a latte rather than Americano where its acidity is more noticeable. Am using it with an Aeropress and a very fine grind
One of my new favourites. Definitely one to order again. Worked very well as a pour over
Really enjoyed this coffee. My wife is very picky when it comes to coffee but even she said it was the best she had tasted. Definitely buy again.
It was difficult to get the right grind from my manual traditional grinder. On various settings the grounds were the same size. It had a pleasant taste but not as nice as others I've tried.
