Cafe Britt was founded in 1985 as the first gourmet coffee roaster in Costa Rica. Before Cafe Britt, it was virtually impossible to find a memorable cup of coffee in the country. It seemed all the truly exquisite Costa Rican coffee was being hidden away. This, of course, was not true. The simple fact was all the best coffee was being exported.
It was here we had the opportunity to pioneer great change and introduce gourmet quality roasted coffee to Costa Rica. As exporters ourselves, we were able to see the problem and we knew we could solve it; by reserving and roasting some of this fine Costa Rican coffee. We had all the ingredients for success: access to perfect coffee from the countrys best plantations, the finest mills, the roasters, and the obsession with quality. We combined all our resources and the result was Cafe Britt, Costa Rica s most remarkable coffee.
