Looking to by this as a present for a friend. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  1. The Green Beanery has them.

    Look at the bottom of this page:

    1. There is a Specialty Coffee shop in the St. Lawrence Market. I would assume they would have Costa Rician Coffee.

      1. Birds & Beans, Lakeshore W near Superior/Primrose/Mimico Avs.

        1. I'd also suggest Green Beanery. I find Birds and Beans tends to under-roast.... only my opinion, but I find that they don't hit city roast. I've bought a LOT of coffee from both. Green Beanery has a great selection.

            Costa Rican coffee beans have become very trendy lately. I used to have a condo on the beach in Jaco in Costa Rica and love the coffee, every time I returned my suitcase was filled with about 60 pounds of beans in foil bricks. No clothes, just coffee beans. Some Canadian Customs Officers were intrigued and tried to find out what I was "really" smuggling (nada), and others didn't care. Now a days Loblaws and No Frills has packets of coffee beans from Costa Rica in several roastings.

            They have mail-order too.
