Volcanica Coffee announces the start of their 2006 gourmet coffee harvest in Costa Rica.

Today, Volcanica Coffee announced the kick off of the 2006 gourmet coffee harvest in Costa Rica. The gourmet coffee farms that supply Volcanica Coffee have started the laborious process of the annual harvest.

The harvest is taking place in the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica which is located in the high mountains south of San Jose. The high altitude of 5,000 feet above sea level is a main contributor to the elegant flavor in the Costa Rican Tarrazu coffee but the steep sloping volcanic mountains make it very difficult to farm. Coffee plants must be picked by hand then carried long distances to the closest road for pick up. The other challenges facing farmers in this region is the scarcity of workers to pick the harvest.

We are very excited that another harvest is upon us which literally brings us the fruits of our labor over the past year says Jorge Umana the manager of the Don Evelio Coffee Estate which is a major supplier to Volcanica Coffee. “The first cupping from the harvest indicates that we have another great gourmet coffee crop for 2006â€
