At Tamarindo Coffee Roasters, ¢1,000 buys you a volcano in a cup.
That’s how co-owner Craig Bale debunked the exceptional cold brew we sipped on a recent Tamarindo trip. Bale called that silky and citrusy coffee Girasole, named for the lot in Tarrazú where it’s grown in mineral-rich volcanic soil for thousands of years.
Savoring the culture behind the cup is at the heart of Tamarindo Coffee Roasters, a specialty coffee producer, and cafe located a short drive from the town’s bustling beachfront. A year old, the business has emphasized transparency and care in the growing, selecting and serving of specialty brews, including specialty coffee grown in Guanacaste’s Blue Zone.
