Why Choose Don Evelio Costa Rica Tarrazu Specialty Coffees.

Why ? Why not? Don Evelio Estate farms provide you with guarantees that no other Costa Rican coffee company makes. First, our customer service staff is highly trained. Unlike other companies, we not only have to just know how to roast coffee beans! We are required to know about coffee farming, mill process, green coffee storage and more. Also, we will respond to your coffee inquiries within hours, not days. Most so called gourmet coffee companies will reply to your e-mails more than a week later!

Second, our sun-dried coffees are of the highest quality, and prestige, found in the market. We take great care to provide as many quality safeguards as necessary to harvest and roast the top of the Tarrazu highland coffee. Our packaging provides as many safeguards as necessary to protect freshness and prevent quality loss. Our coffee roasting machine is not overused either! We put into each batch less coffee than what the machine can actually handle to guarantee quality. Yes, we are small-batch artisan coffee roasters!

Fincas Tarrazu Cafe S.A. is a coffee farming and coffee roasting company truly dedicated to customers. That has been our goal since we started planting coffee trees in the late 1890´s, and we'll continue that way for as long as demand for Tarrazu coffee exists. More important, all our exports originates in the valley where our farms are located. Origin and truth in labelling is our major asset.

And of course, if you don't like our coffee, no problem! At our companies, your satisfaction is guaranteed. You are protected by our money back guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied with the quality of our Tarrazu Coffee, return the unused portion to us and we will send you a new package or return your money, whatever option you prefer.

Low prices, high quality coffee

Shipping and handling from our factory in San Marcos de Tarrazu, Costa Rica to any place in the U.S.A. and Canada is included. You can even get our new T-shirt with our logo for only 20 dollars!
Don Evelio coffee has the right balance between pricing and quality. Beware of "have it all for a low price" coffees! Some coffee roasters give way too much for too little, which doesn't leave them enough profit to provide good customer service, fast delivery and high-quality coffee cast doubts about where their coffee originated. Remember the saying: you get what you pay for!

Powerful Roasting machine; never overloaded.
Most coffee roasters use low power, low cost roasting machines to maximize profits. We don't. We roast all our coffees on a powerful, propane powered Sasa Samiac machine.

Our roasting equipment can handle all our daily purchase orders with no problem at all.
Also, we are the only gourmet coffee provider in the valley to truly guarantee that batches will not be overloaded. Our priority is Quality.

Our shipments are picked up by modern courier trucks once a day which ensures your shipments will be delivered on time and efficiently through the shortest route possible.

Shipment tracking to make your life easier
An export operation without a shipment control system is an inefficient operation. On all our deliveries, customer service support staff takes care of all shipment notices via e-mail. All of our shipments can be tracked easily via the courier’s tracking system panel which gives you the control and power others don't. If anything fails, there's always monitoring to solve the problem.

Storage Facilities
The most commonly overlooked and most delicate part of the business on any gourmet coffee operation is green coffee storage, and thus it is the part most likely to affect quality. Because of this, all our harvest are kept in a cool dry place with the right environment humidity. What does this mean? No quality loss due to environmental factors, one of the most common causes of quality failures in the mill and roasting process.
