Costa Rica Dota Tarrazu Estate Coffee
Our Santa Maria de Dota Terrazu estate-grown coffee comes from the home of the elusive Quetzal, the beautifully plumed endangered species. True Tarrazu appellation coffee only comes from three cantons in the highest altitude of the region of Tarrazu, including Santa Maria, that are located in a Cloud Forest (montane) through which many endangered wildlife species migrate. Most of the land is under conservation.
Grown at the peak of the ridge, at 6000 feet or above, these beans are classified as SHB (Strictly Hard Bean), a term reserved for high-altitude, dense beans with dark color and super-rich flavor. This is primarily Arabica Red Catuai with a little Yellow Catuai from taller-growing trees. Characterized by a pure coffee aroma and brown-sugar taste.
8 oz bags, please choose whole bean or ground. We are generally low on our stock of these beans, due to exporting complications, so we are now only offering it in our favorite Medium Roast.
