Beneficio San Diego is the most modern mill in Costa Rica. It was established in 1888 and has been innovating ever since. Today Beneficio San Diego specializes in coffees from Tarrazú and Tres Ríos regions. The mill takes pride in striving for ever-increasing efficiency and quality standards. At the same time, it has taken a leading role in working with producers to ensure good community relations and sustainable production.
As the average farm size of three hectares in the Tarrazú region, this unique natural coffee is produced by a community of farmers who deliver to the San Diego wet mill. These are carefully selected during the harvest, based on their farm condition and cherry ripeness.
Choose your roast!
Light Roast is great for pour-over or drip if you enjoy more of the sweetness and subtle acidity a coffee presents.
Our medium roast brings more of the nutty and chocolate flavors forward and is extremely versatile for cold-brewed or hot brewed coffee drinks.
the darkest roast we offer of this origin has developed more of the rich chocolate flavors. It’s perfect for anyone who enjoys a dark roast coffee as well as someone who enjoys a medium roast.
Pick your Costa Rica Tarrazú grind
If you have a coffee grinder at home we suggest you choose the whole bean option. To read more about whole bean or pre-ground coffee click here.
Our Northside Coffee pour over grind is best for anyone who enjoys manual brew methods. We choose a more fine grind to ensure the best extraction using any pour-over method.
If you have an automated drip machine, choose the drip grind option. We set this grind to produce a high-quality cup of coffee on all automatic coffee brewers.
The cold-brew grind option is our most coarse grind. Since the cold brew extraction method takes a longer time, the large grind allows for more surface area and balanced extraction.
Our Northside Coffee espresso grind is dialed in for our machine at our cafe downtown. It might not be as compatible with every espresso machine so we recommend for most espresso drinkers grind it themselves. We know that may not be an option for everyone so we will provide a fine grind for your convenience.
We hope you enjoy your coffee and appreciate your feedback.
