Costa Rica Dota Tarrazu (Feb-Mar 2022)

Regular price $20.00

Coffee has been growing in Costa Rica since the early 19th century, and coffee production was strongly encouraged by the government of Costa Rica by giving away free coffee seeds, allowing certain tax exemptions, and even to the extent of giving away land to farmers who grew coffee on it! It is of no wonder that coffee became a very important export of the country (Fun fact: it was the only export of the country between 1846 and 1940) and it contributed greatly to the development of the country.

Our #dYScover collection this month features coffee from the Tarrazu region, which has a long-standing reputation for quality. The mineral-rich soil, coupled with the high altitude provides the perfect condition for the development of the coffee cherries.  

We taste notes of green grapes, honey, with a slight cocoa-like bitterness, in a medium, velvety body cup of coffee with a pleasant acidity to finish. 

As our #dYScover beans are roasted specially, and separately from the rest of our offerings, we only have limited quantities per month! If you have ever thought or wondered about specialty coffee from Costa Rica, do make sure you give this a try soon!

There are so many different types of coffee grown in various regions of the world, with each region tasting very distinct from one another. 

#dYScover, by Yong Seng Coffee, is our attempt at letting you experience high quality/specialty coffee from the various coffee-producing regions of the world. Read more about specialty coffee here!

Join us on this journey as we bring in coffee from different regions every month, as we explore the world of coffee together.

A taste of heritage

and fresh perspectives

Yong Seng Coffee specialises in Singapore's favourite - traditional Nanyang coffee, a.k.a. kopi (meaning coffee in Malay). Being the lifeblood of many Singaporeans, we have served our many blends of traditional kopi for over 40 years, in addition to a selection of dry-roasted coffee of various origins.

Today, embodying heritage with every bag, we strive to keep our family's legacy and Singapore's kopi culture alive, while continuously working to expand and refine our offerings to cater to your ever-evolving preferences.

Testimonials

Tried the Arabica Blend and it changed my perspective of white coffee. Ditch your 3-in-1 and brew your own coffee with Yong Seng this CB period.

I ordered all the 6 choices (of Drip Bag Coffee) to try. Arrived yesterday and tried the Signature Blend #1 this morning. Clear indication of roasted & packing dates on each packet. Fresh and full of aroma, highly recommended. Tks!
