  • Washed

    While the processing details might vary slightly from farm to farm or by association, generally the coffee is picked ripe and depulped the same day, then given an open-air fermentation in tanks or buckets for anywhere between 12–36 hours. The coffee is washed clean of its mucilage before being dried either on patios, in parabolic dryers, solar driers, or mechanically.

A debut coffee from Costa Rica

We began sampling lots from Costa Rica in August as they came available, various farms and processes we're on the cupping table, and with a tough shootout we landed on La Pastora. We wanted something that was a great example of a delicious coffee that showcased its origins characteristics while still being approchable. La Pastora in this regard showcased excellent versatility and quality, an incredibly clean, sweet cup, balanced flavours of fruit acidity, with a rich Almond and Chocolate body to balance the bright acitity as filter, or a round bright and fruity espresso.

The Producers

In 1966, the coffee that represents CoopeTarrazú R.L. worldwide was born, planted in La Pastora, the highest point of Tarrazú in Los Santos Region, Costa Rica. 5,000 coffee producers earn a living for their families and improve their community through their work of producing this coffee. The plantations are located between 1,200 and 1,900 meters of altitude approximately, in ideal climate and soil conditions for cultivation. Most of the plantations are planted under the shade of native trees of the region. Processing coffee without impacting the environment negatively, marketing the coffee with higher added value, and exporting it according to the qualities and times agreed with our clients, are elements that over the years have become part of the coop’s brand seal.
