About this coffee

Coffee story

The Costa Rican town of Santa Maria de Dota is perched at the edge of the famed Tarrazú coffee appellation, the last of a string of towns known for coffee and named for saints. Small farms dot these peaks, cultivating beans known for acidity as crisp and bright as the alpine light, and flavor as deep as the valleys below.

This year we had the pleasure of tasting 35 unique microlots from the prized Dota sub-region—representing the care, expertise, and ingenuity of individual growers. We cupped them all, firing up our senses to winnow the offering down to a final eight. And then we cupped again, agreeing (unanimously this time) on the finest lot. Congratulations to the winning farmer, Fernando Chacon, and to those about to drink it.

There are only 33 bags of the Fernando Chacon microlot, so if you are a fan of the purity, intensity, and citric sweetness of the finest Costa Rica Tarrazú, we suggest you get your hands on this one.

Pura Vida!
