Where in Costa Rica do we buy great coffee beans?

I'm in Costa Rica, I like coffee, I hear that there are lots of great coffee producers here. Every hole in the wall souvenir shop and nature park gift shop has bags of randomly labeled ground coffee that's been sitting on the shelves for who knows how long. I'd really like to buy a couple pounds of great whole bean coffee to take home to friends. Where can I get it? I'm in Monteverde right now, we're driving to Alajuela via Sarchi today and eventually flying out of San Jose. Is there a Market or gift shop that sells what I'm looking for?
