Costa Rica El Cedral Natural

Cupping notes

Violet, sherry, chocolate, and honey balanced elegantly through the cup.

Description

Coope Dota are based in Santa Maria De Dota Tarrazu, an area that now supplies 46% of the coffee from Costa Rica. The small holder farmers they represent produce a number of microlots within the cooperative, the structure of which is designed to be able to isolate high scoring coffees and process through a separate micro mill.

The first carbon neutral coffee processor, the Coope Dota have expanded to provide not only forward thinking processing facilities, but a roastery and coffee school, shops and warehouses to supply the many needs their members have, as well as combine many value streams to maximum effect for them. This helps to both educate and demonstrate to the younger generation the opportunities that can fall under the coffee umbrella, and slow the generational drift away from smaller towns and villages to the cities. Dota employ agronomists and technical staff, and run a ‘laboratory’ farm to trial innovations and develop best practice, as well as educate farmers on, before rolling out learnings to their members.

Finca El Cedral is the model farm run by Dota that is used to test processes, produce microlots and provide training for the cooperative members. With Cherries grown 60% under shade, this natural lot was picked at 20% Brix and patio dried for 20 days down to 10% moisture.
