Welcome to Tico Todd’s
Gourmet Costa Rican Coffee!
It has been said the happiness is a journey, not a destination.
With Tico Todd’s Coffee you can truly Journey through
the rainforest by trying each of our coffees. Our Gourmet
Coffee is 100% Arabica, shade grown from the various micro-climates
of Costa Rica.
have three coffees which are Mountain Grown at high altitudes
(1200-1750 meters). Coffee grown at high altitude gives
you the enjoyment of a great body of coffee with excellent
acidity and aroma. Of all the differences in the various
micro-climates, the single most important variation is the
altitude. The low oxygen permits the plant the splendor
of growing slowly. This allows more time for vitamins, minerals
and flavor to infuse into the fruit and beans. It is the
high altitude which offers the coffee expert everything
he is asking for in a coffee. It is for this reason that
the Costa Rican Tarrazu is the highest recommended coffee
in the world by those in-the-know.
also offer three Valley Grown coffees grown at low altitudes
(400-1200 meters). Coffee grown at lower altitudes allows
for a strong yet smoother body than the higher altitude
beans. Coffee plants grown at lower altitudes offer a taste
which is similar to the lower altitude grown coffees of
Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Jamaica. The smoothness of Valley
Grown coffee is great for Espresso and Latin style coffees.
In addition we offer our special decaf coffee for those
who want all the flavor of a good Costa Rican Arabica, but
just don’t want the wonderful caffeine. We put special
emphasis on sourcing Tarrazu. We use the Swiss water method
to extract the caffeine. This method uses only water and
no chemicals. Try JoJo’s decaf. Named after someone
special, my mom!
All of our coffees are shade grown and thus bird friendly
as well as environmentally friendly. (See our more in-depth
description under Tico Todd’s History Page) Tico Todd’s
exclusive Organic beans are certified as free of all chemicals
including fertilizers and pesticides for 3 years and more!
We pride ourselves on that! Source emphasis: Tarrazu.
We recommend that you enjoy all six of our coffees by ordering
the Coffee Sampler. Try each one of them and decide for
yourself which one you prefer. After trying all of them
individually we further recommend that you get a little
crazily creative. For example, take a little of the Tarrazu
and a little of the San Isidro, put both of them in your
grinder and enjoy the fine qualities they have to offer
in one cup.
Enjoy your Journey!
