In 2011, the founders of Café José traveled to Costa Rica’s interior jungles, stunning Arenal volcano, and expansive coffee plantations. While bountiful wildlife and local hospitality enchanted them, it was the intensely flavorful coffee that disarmed them! They departed with rich memories, new friendships, and a passion for authentic Costa Rica coffee that they now bring to you through Café José.

Café Jose’s Golden Nugget coffee is made from 100% Arabica beans sourced directly from Tarrazu or Monte Verde. These magical valleys rise from 2,000 to 4,000 feet above sea level, crowned by lush rain forest where the song of lively jungle creatures at daybreak punctuates each day of honest work. Rich volcanic soils and a cool, moist climate conspire to produce “Strict Hard Beans” – the best of the best!

We’d ask you to try Golden Nugget… but chances are you already know them from gourmet brands that seek out these exceptional beans. Instead, we invite you to get reacquainted with the authentic, gourmet Costa Rican coffee brought to you by Café José.
