TRIESTE, Italy, Jan. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- illycaffè, a leading company in high quality coffee, today announced the launch of Arabica Selection Costa Rica, the sixth single origin coffee in the illy Arabica Selection product line-up. illy first introduced the illy Arabica Selection range in 2018, made from the best coffee productions around the world, each dedicated to the origins of the individual aromas that make up the illy blend. The new illy Arabica Selection Costa Rica coffee offers a sweet Arabica with characteristic notes of honey and vanilla, along with citrus, hints of caramel and dried fruit.

The specialness of illy Arabica Selection Costa Rica, as for every Arabica Selection, lies in its geographical origin. The illy experts, together with the internal research laboratories AromaLab, SensoryLab and Food ScienceLab, have developed the best roasting profile for each coffee, refining the perfect expression of each individual territory. As a result, the best harvests from Ethiopia, Colombia, Brazil, Guatemala, India, and now Costa Rica offer the chance to experience the singular taste and aroma of each origin and celebrate their unique characteristics. Organized in a crescendo of intensity, from the most delicate to the most robust, the Arabica Selection line's packaging scales in earth tone colors to distinguish its flavor profile from that of the legendary, unmistakable illy blend.

"With the illy Arabica Selection range, we differentiate the origins of the individual aromas of our blend to offer them in purity. We wanted to offer our customers the opportunity to dive into a sensory journey around the world," comments Massimiliano Pogliani, CEO of the company. "In these difficult times when everyone's borders have necessarily narrowed, our new Arabica Selection Costa Rica, with its aromas and notes that evoke the enchantment of unspoiled landscapes, is our way to look to the future with hope to rediscover the pleasure of exploring distant countries and cultures through a cup of coffee."

illy Arabica Selection Costa Rica whole bean is available exclusively on and in illy Caffè locations and Shops for a retail price of $14.99. The single-origin illy Arabica Selection Ethiopia, Colombia, Brazil, Guatemala and India are available on and in illy Caffè locations and Shops in ground, whole bean and Iperespresso capsule formats.
