Costa Rican SHB EP Dota Tarrazu – Santa Maria – Washed Processed

(7 customer reviews)

A very nice co-op production Tarrazu that follows the classic Costa terroir, floral acidity versus nutty and chocolaty tones. Best at medium to dark roasts, a lovely daily drinker. A good balance of flavors that can accommodate anyone’s personal tastes, dependent on roast level. Lighter roasts are brighter, sweeter and more floral, balanced with hints of dryer, nutty undertones. Medium roasts had the best balance, smooth with a slight chocolaty edge and pronounced nuttiness in the aftertaste, just a hint of crispness to the cup. Dark roasts turn fuller bodied and semi-sweet, accentuating the nutty and chocolate tones even more but will lose its floral and crisp sweeter edge.

Description

Our favorite Tarrazu of last season is back in action!

There is nowhere like Costa Rica when it comes to coffee cooperatives.  CoopeDota, which produces this coffee,  is one of the finest.

It starts with an unmatched commitment to the environment. CoopeDota has a first of its kind certified carbon-neutral mill, which features hydro-powered energy consumption, water efficient eco-pulpers (also called a demucilager), and mechanical coffee dryers fueled by coffee parchment. Nearly 900 producer-members living throughout the canton of Dota within the province of San Jose, Costa Rica 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.

Tasting Notes:
A very nice co-op production Tarrazu that follows the classic Costa terroir, floral acidity versus nutty and chocolaty tones. Best at medium to dark roasts, a lovely daily drinker. A good balance of flavors that can accommodate anyone’s personal tastes, dependent on roast level.

Dark roasts turn fuller bodied and semi-sweet, accentuating the nutty and chocolate tones even more but will lose its floral and crisp sweeter edge.

Roasting Notes:
Great from light to dark. Even roasting with low to medium chaff. A couple extra day setup time can really help smooth out the cup. Drinking too soon can accentuate the more sour floral acidity. Sweet, delicate and balanced, shoot for a roast level before 2nd crack. Smoky rich and chocolaty, shoot for touching 2nd crack to a couple pops into it.

    I talk with a few other roasters and we talk about the cost versus taste and quality of coffee. You can have a lower priced coffee per pound that cups better than those that cost several dollars more. This Costa Rican is one of those coffees. I take it to a City Roast and just love this coffee. It is a great cup of coffee.

    Can’t wait to wake up and start my day with this coffee bean!

    Roasted in an air roaster between 1st and 2nd crack. As a cold brew it make a very refreshing drink. Bright floral reminds me of a jasmine tea. As a pour over its sweet, acidic and floral. For this price its a steal.

    Amazing sale price on these beans. Costa Rican beans are typically our favorite, and these beans have not dissapointed – taken to just before 2nd crack for us. Really, a great cup!

  6. John G Turner (verified owner)

    The reason I give this coffee a 4 star rating is because of its acid content. It’s not overwhelming, but it did let me know. Otherwise, a very good cup of joe. Roasted to medium dark, just after 2 crack. Was very clean. Not a lot of chafe.
