It’s Snowing In Costa Rica

Coffee Blossoms Bloom Early In Costa Rica

Costa Rica Coffee PlantationsSimilar to the cherry blossoms explosions in the Washington area of the United States, coffee plantations are experiencing the blooming of blooms a bit earlier this year as a result of of an early spring. This appears to be good news for the coffee farming community who see the blossoms as a sign of prosperity but as we all know, with the changes to weather patterns across the world, good news isn’t always great news.

For many parts of the world, the weather patterns have changed drastically, leaving ramifications across the globe. For example, parts of Europe experienced one of the harshest winters in recent times with many dying in parts of Poland and the Ukraine. In other places such as southern Ontario in Canada, mild temperatures resulted in record low snowfalls for the season. For industries that rely on the snow as a source of revenue, the season was a financial bust.

Coffee Crops Up In Costa Rica

For Costa Rica, the coffee growing season appears to be off to a good start. In the region of Chirripo and Poas Volcano area where plantations are abundant, the rains experienced during the afternoons have given way to the explosion of the white blossoms which give the appearance of snow covering the landscape.It is hoped that the early start to the season will bring prosperity to the coffee plantations. With exports already up for the year, it is hoped that the trend will continue with great crop production. In addition, last season’s rains did not do as much damage as thought resulting in healthy conditions to start the season on a good note.

Costa Rica is known for its coffee. Eco tourism includes visits to coffee plantations with tours on how coffee is harvested and prepared for export. The start of a good season is good news for Costa Rica and its coffee growers. After all, Starbucks is coming to Costa Rica in May with the opening of their first location in the Escazu area of San Jose. What would Starbucks do without Costa Rican coffee beans????
