History of Costa Rican coffee: Coffee was first introduced in 1796. In 1809, it has been said that Father Felix Velarde, a Catholic priest started cultivation with seeds that came from Panama, Cuba or Jamaica. Records at the time show that coffee was mainly known to cure headaches and considered more as a medicine than a drink. Today, Costa Rican coffee is still a valued export, boasting the highest yields in the world thanks to modern farming practice in fertilisation and irrigation, and supported well by governmental regulation.
