Taza Agua, the world’s first to market bottled water company designed specifically for America’s $18 billion dollar annual coffee market, has confirmed today that it has been officially endorsed by international multi-award winning certified coffee judge, Kattia Barrantes Zuñiga.
The stamp of approval from the world recognized coffee expert is a major boost for the new company highlighting the many benefits of Costa Rica’s plentiful supply of natural volcanic spring water while guaranteeing that the highest environmental standards are upheld. “Taza Agua volcanic spring water is the perfect choice for use in home espresso and drip coffee machines,” asserted, Kattia Barrantes Zuñiga. “Not only does this company that I have thoroughly inspected ensure a quality brew, the water is absolutely coffee maker friendly too.”
400 million cups of coffee are consumed in the United States each day, according to data released by the National Coffee Association USA non-profit and the Specialty Coffee Association of America. National coffee trends research from the Zagat Survey, established since 1979, revealed that people in America drink an average of 2.1 cups of coffee a day. The survey has also tracked an increase in coffee consumption as people get older.

With its global headquarters in Flamingo and a brand new operational state of the art bottling plant located high in the mountains of Río Cuarto, the unique Taza Agua family business has targeted the key global markets of the United States, Mexico, China and Qatar with international shipping expected to commence in the third quarter of 2016. This means taking full advantage of Costa Rica’s strong existing international trade agreements and strict Food and Drug Administration, FDA labeling. Global luxury hotel groups have also been in discussions with the company.
“Humans are made up of 60% water and coffee is 95% water. Taza Agua, which can be used for tea and coffee, offers a fine balance between quality taste and functionality. When you buy a car you don’t put bad oil or fuel into it,” explained, Francini Retana Rodriquez, Co-Founder, Taza Agua. “Manufacturers are swift to point out the importance of using high-quality water for the making of all hot beverage varieties. The mineral content of every bottle of Taza Agua is completely machine friendly. This has the added benefit of extending the life of family kitchen investments in expensive espresso machines and coffee makers leaving zero harmful mineral deposits.”
The Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health adjacent to Harvard Medical School states that 54% of American adults drink coffee every day of their lives.
