Roastmaster's Select Club: Coffee from Costa Rica

Each month, our Roastmaster, Jacob Long, hand-picks fresh and unique micro lot coffees that we deliver straight to your doorstep. “What is a micro lot,” you ask? Read up on how we source the beans and what happens when they reach our roastery.

Coffee Grown in Costa Rica

This month's coffee selection from our Roastmaster, Jacob Long, is not only delicious and awakening, it's also environmentally-friendly - which is very important to us. Our Costa Rican Santa Maria de Dota is grown by the Cooperativa de Caficultores de Dota R.L. (CoopeDota), established in 1960 and made up of over 900 farmers in the San José region.

To emphasize their environmentally-conscious farming techniques, CoopeDota is one of the first to utilize a certified carbon-neutral mill with hydro-powered energy consumption, water efficient eco-pulpers and mechanical coffee dryers fueled by coffee parchment. If all of that wasn't impressive enough, CoopeDota also provides trash pickup for the entirity of San Jose, furthering their committment to a healthy environment and bettering of the planet.

We're so thrilled to share this coffee with you! Remember to leave us a review and add a photo to earn more beans, for more discounts!
