The move to our new home and the addition of our second daughter may have signalled the end of the the Sustainable Cup. We apologize for leaving you without your weekly "fix", and we'll be sure to let you know if things change. Thanks for your support and we wish you all the best.
Peace and blessings to all.

Costa Rica - Dota Tarraz˙ - El Conquistador
Costa Rica
$8.00

This exceptional coffee comes from the Dota area of the famous Tarraz˙ region of Costa Rica.  For many years the majority of coffee from the Coopedota cooperative has gone to a single roaster in Germany.  Recently the folks from the legendary coffee estate Hacienda La Minita have been selecting lots from this cooperative to import as "El Conquistador".  This coffee is grown with great care and respect for the environment at altitudes of 5000-6000 feet by the 700 families that comprise the cooperative.  Like many classic Costa Rican coffees, the El Conquistador is a clean and refined cup - yet it has a remarkable amount of depth and subtle complexity.  Bright and fruited acidity is balanced by a sweet and silky finish.


$8 per Pound
