History

Development of Costa Rica’s coffee culture.

The first coffee seeds were planted in Costa Rica in the late 18th century. Coffee farming began to take place in early 1808, and it has since deeply encompassed Costa Rican culture. The first coffee plantation was located near one of the most emblematic churches of San José, The Metropolitan Cathedral. After the Independence of the country in 1821, coffee farming was granted with the concession of land to those who were interested, production was supported by the government that saw in this product an opportunity to benefit the economy and the country’s social development between 1830 and 1840.

 

The first two “quintales” (46kg. each) of coffee were exported from Costa Rica to Panama in 1820. However, as the Government, whom, at the time was responsible for commercial policy, saw that England was the most important market for the coffee trade, not only they supported farming, but also built the road to the Atlantic in order to have direct access to English harbors. Trading with England took place starting in 1832 and it consolidated with Europe in 1840.

 

The flourishing coffee business led to the establishment of companies that exported coffee to Europe and at the same time imported manufactured goods from the old continent that they sold in Costa Rican soil, such as: corn and wheat grinding machines, iron plates, etc. The conclusion of the road to Puntarenas in 1846, a province located in the south of the country, allowed the mules to be replaced by wagons. Coffee was the only product exported by Costa Rica until 1890 and it managed to become the main axis of the economy until the dawn of the 20th century.

 

Costa Rica has been known in the world for its aromatic coffee, that cultivated the traditions and culture of a country. It remains as a symbol of progress, development and peace, it forged and defined the identity of the people, it is no wonder why it became Costa Rica’s “Golden Bean”.
