Costa Rica Santa Maria


Santa Maria is back, and we're excited to have both Cooperativa de Caficultores de Dota (CoopeDota) specifically, and Central American coffees generally, back in the roastery! 2023 is the seventh harvest roasting up tasty goodness from CoopeDota and farmers in the village of Santa Maria, and this year's Santa Maria is among the best we've roasted.

We're always excited to roast the goods from CoopeDota because the coffee is tasty, and the group has always been a sustainability leader in Costa Rica. In 2011 the cooperative produced the world's first certified carbon-neutral coffee, and is known for its work to reduce both its carbon and water footprints.  CoopeDota washes all of its coffees using an Eco-Pulper - a machine that uses significantly less water to remove the coffee's fruit and mucilage from the bean. While it's not necessary with this machine, the cooperative does give its microlots a chance to ferment before washing, which tends to boost complexity. 

2023 Santa Maria has a lot going for it - milk-friendly hazelnut and pie crust flavors, balanced green apple and citrus brightness, and a touch of stone fruit. It's a crowd-pleaser, perfect for kicking off the long-awaited Central season here at Huck!
