Costa Rica’s national tree, the Guanacaste, gives its name to this Core Coffee from the Tarrazu valley of Costa Rica. This Guanacaste Coffee is produced by Coopedota; since 1960, the cooperative has supported smallholder farmers in and around the town of Santa Maria de Dota. This washed coffee represents the collective efforts of Coopedota’s hundreds of members. In Costa Rica, ripe coffee cherries are collected daily at a centralized wet will and dupulped, washed, and dried in large batches to produce uniformity, consistency, and cleanliness. The infrastructural design contributes to the overall quality of the final coffee, which delivers the full complexity of the terroir’s fruit, chocolate, and sugar notes.
Carbon Neutral Offering
Coopedota has taken a leading role in the response of Costa Rica’s agricultural sector to climate change by reducing carbon emissions along the production and processing chain to achieve verified carbon neutrality of their coffee. The Coopedota mill composts coffee cherry pulp, irrigates cattle pastures with waste water, and encourages its members to maintain primary and secondary forests on their property by offering active agronomy consultations and workshops.
Delicious notes of sugarcane, smooth and rich chocolate cacao nibs, with a spice-like mouthfeel that reminds us of cinnamon.
