freds_cafeREVIEW:  FRED el  Explorador  de Sabores  is more than a coffee shop. Located in Plaza Mayor in Rohrmoser, at first glance it is looks the same as any other coffe shop. However, Fred offers its customers something different.

Fred serves only coffee grown in the hills of Naranjo, Costa Rica, at an altitude of 1.500 metres (more than 4.500 feet). The finest coffee in Costa Rica is typically grown at altitudes of 1200 to 1700 metres; the lower quality coffee is typically grown at altitudes below 1200 metres, in a longer growing season that lasts from late summer through to winter.

The coffee chosen by Fred to serve its customers has repeatedly won the Cup of Excellence of Costa Rica.

Besides coffee, Fred also offers a variety of teas from around the world. Fruit teas from India, African herbal and Green tea from Japan, among others. Did you know that tea is consumed twice as much as coffee in the world?

Pastries from “Chrisophe” and delicious sandwiches made with French bread or baguette are available at any time. Fred’s recipes are original, all products are handmade.

Chocolates are from “La Chocolateria” and the juices come from  doña Lideitter in Rohmoser.

Fred strongly rejects industrially processed ingredients as used by fast food chains, mainly foreign chains. At Fred’s you will find mostly Tico (Costa Rican) products like cheeses, meats, hams, etc…

fredsQCostarica.com readers can enjoy two cups of Fred’s coffee for the price of one any morning between 8:00 and 10:00.
