Sourced exclusively from Costa Rica amidst its authentic highland valleys and mineral enriched volcanic soil, this coffee contains beans from farms that have achieved Rainforest Alliance certification, which encourages a minimum of 40% shade cover on farms located in naturally forested areas.


This rich, never bitter medium-bodied coffee has a roast on the darker side of medium which allows those delicate fruit and citrus undertones to shine through. Enjoy in your regular coffee maker or, fan an exceptionally unique experience, this blend is perfectly tailored for use in your French Press brewer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It must be the volcanic soil This coffee is outstanding! I am assuming that the volcanic soil is what gives it such a unique flavor. My new favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Granddaughter thrilled with this coffee This was a present for my granddaughter who had taken a semester of college in Costa Rico. She used to say that the coffee in CR was the best ever. She hadn't found any like it. She is thrilled with this coffee. Sam

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wrong Grind Gavalia is my favorite coffee, and Costa Rica is my favorite product. I'm disappointed with the new coarse grind. I use a Melitta pour over cone filter and with the course grind I hardly get the flavor anymore. It might as well be regular coffee.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bring back original Costa Rica please!! My husband and I fell in love with the original Costa Rica, medium roast, which had a delicacy and depth of flavor (without a bitter bite) we had not found elsewhere. We are sorely disappointed in the Special Reserve. It has lost all of the specialness and now tastes like just another coffee. I've tried grinding it finer in a coffee grinder, I've tried grinding it by hand in a pestle and mortar. I've tried making it in our French press, our percolator and our espresso pot (the latter being our preferred method). Nothing. Boring. I am about to buy reserves of the old Costa Rica on Amazon. Gevalia - bring back the original Costa Rica and I promise I'l come backl! I'll even write a good review. ;-)

How much coffee should I use to how much water in a french press?

Any details about brew time and blossoming the grounds would also be appreciated.
Asked by: Adavis14msu
Hello Adavis14msu, thank you for reaching out to us! Those are all great questions and we would be happy to help. For the French press we reccomend using 2 Tbsp of coffee per 6 oz of water. As for blooming the grounds, gently pour a small quantity of hot water onto the coffee grounds (which should be a coarse grind like our Costa Rica Special Reserve). You should immediately notice a bloom start to form as foam on top of the water in the press-pot. Let the bloom remain for 15-20 seconds, then stir it with your spoon. This is to ensure that all grinds in the bloom have complete contact with the water. From here, you can complete your normal French press brew regime, which normally involves 3-4 minutes of steeping time. We hope this information is helpful and have a great day!
