Costa Rica - Tarrazu Dota

Fully Washed, Micro Lot, Superb

Plum, Milk Chocolate, Caramel, Sweet Apple

This is a traditional eco-pulped coffee from Dota near Tarrazu, Costa Rica, produced by 900 farmers organized around the cooperative CoopeDota.
Cooperativa de Caficultores de Dota R.L (CoopeDota) was established in 1960, and is one of the finest cooperatives in Costa Rica with an unmatched commitment to the environment.

An impeccable example of the best washed coffees from this origin!

General Flavor Observations
Costa Rica - Tarrazu Dota

The flavor profile of this outstanding coffee is sweet and clean, with stone fruit sweetness, plums, nectarines, apricots, all balanced by the caramelized brown sugars and honey.
The cup will yield a nice green apple acidity, milk chocolate, and a coating mouthfeel.

Whichever Roast Level you choose, you will be left with an extremely satisfying experience.

Roast Level Profile Notes
Costa Rica - Tarrazu Dota

My favorite roast level is Full City for the best balance of profile in the cup, but Full City (+) is very nice as well.

We are always happy to accommodate any roast level you prefer.
The notes below illustrate how changing the roast will alter the profile:

City Roast (light roast)

Offers a nice raw sugar sweetness and milk chocolate base with an elegant, light body.
the fruit tones will reveal melon and apple, with hints of honey lemon black tea.
The finish will offer notes of crisp green apple.

Full City Roast (medium roast) - Preferred

This is my favorite roast level, and where I found the most complexity in the profile.
The mouth-feel is smooth, the body is medium with plenty of milk chocolate highlighted by notes of plum and molasses.
This finish will offer notes of sweet, pink lady apple with a mellowed line-like acidity.

Full City (+) Roast

For those of you who enjoy a darker roast, this is a great roast.
The mouth-feel is velvety, with a caramel and cocoa base.
The sweet stone fruit notes of grape, cherry, and fig are more developed with this roast.
The finish will be long and pointed, but with tempered acidity.

Vienna Roast

This roast will provide a deeper and juicier body with darker, bittersweet chocolate notes and a toffee sweetness, while maintaining the stone fruit profile.
The finish will be more lingering.

French Roast

Not recommended.

The growers of this coffee focus their attention on farm management throughout the year and then deliver their cherry to the CoopeDota mill where traceability and quality control are second to none.
CoopeDota has an equally intricate model of income diversification with a profitable agriculture supply store and tourism department dedicated to showing off coffee farms to visitors.

They also roast their own coffee and operate three cafes and a cupper/barista training center.
Their commitment to the environment also extends to the community of Santa Maria de Dota where the cooperative manages trash pickup for the entire town.

Great Coffee
The Costa Rica Tarrazu is a great coffee.

I really enjoy your products. There is no comparison to other brands, especially when I drink the first gulp in the morning.
