Are you looking for an “easy drinking” medium roast coffee? Café Britt’s Costa Rican Tres Ríos Valdivia blend should definitely be on your radar screen.
Tres Ríos combines flavors of plum, allspice, and orange citrus with a pleasing honey-nut aroma. The result is an “elegant,” bright and well-balanced cup of coffee. It’s ideal for enjoying mid-morning or during a relaxing afternoon.
The Tres Ríos coffee growing region of Costa Rica produces some of the finest coffee in the world. The region provides optimal natural conditions for growing fine coffee.
The mountain slopes on which the coffee is grown range in altitude from 1,200 to 1,650 meters. The Caturra and Catuai varieties of Arabica coffee that make up the Tres Ríos blend flourish at these altitudes.
Tres Ríos soils are enriched by minerals from eruptions of the nearby Irazú Volcano (most recently in 1963). The climate is marked by distinct wet and dry seasons, with a winter harvest season stretching from December to March.
Tres Ríos is located in Cartago Province in the center of Costa Rica, just east of San José. The region includes the town of Tres Ríos, with an estimated population of about 9,500. Its name derives from the confluence of three rivers—Rio Tiribi, Rio Chiquito, and Rio La Cruz. Tres Ríos is sometimes called the “Bordeaux” of Costa Rica because of the high quality of its coffee.
The Café Britt brand is produced by Grupo Britt, N.V., which was founded in Costa Rica in 1985. The company has personal relationships with its Costa Rican coffee growers that span decades. As a result, Café Britt receives only the best Arabica beans from the growers.
The company works closely with the growers to ensure environmental sustainability. Its expert roasters roast the coffee beans slowly and in small batches. They don’t use additives to enhance the flavor. Café Britt actively engages with each step of the process, carefully nurturing the beans to achieve perfect results.
Café Britt’s Costa Rican Tres Ríos Valdivia blend coffee reflects this attention to quality in every cup. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good medium roast coffee.
Café Britt’s Costa Rican Tres Ríos Valdivia blend is available online from CafeBritt.com in 12-ounce bags, either whole bean or pre-ground. It is also available from Amazon.com and is eligible for Prime shipping. Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial.

I live near you and want to know if I can I buy a bag of Cafe Britt’s coffee from you or only by the cup from you and from them for more? If I can buy a bag of ground COSTA RICAN TRES RIOS VALDIVIA, please let me know the price. The shipping is high from them directly so I was hoping there could be a savings this way but maybe not. Thank you!

Thank you for your inquiry. I apologize for this late response. I don’t sell any coffee directly. However, I recently became aware that Café Britt coffees are available on Amazon.com as well as directly from Café Britt. Here’s a link for Tres Ríos Valdivia ground coffee, which can be purchased with free shipping with Amazon Prime. I will be updating this article to provide the link to Amazon.

Brian, I have tried Tres Rios and I agree with you, it is a perfect brew. The medium roast is my favorite and this lovely combination of plum, allspice, and orange citrus makes it even more amazing.
