Our Dota Terrazu estate-grown coffee is the cream of the crop, the Arabica from our grower's home estate located in the premier Dota area, from Down To Earth Farm. Now a Silver & Bronze Medal Winner in the 2016 Golden Bean North America competition!
Grown at the peak of the ridge, at 6000 feet or above, these beans are classified as SHB (Strictly Hard Bean), a term reserved for high-altitude, dense beans with dark color and super-rich flavor. This is primarily Arabica Red Catuai with a little Yellow Catuai from taller-growing trees. Characterized by a pure coffee aroma and brown-sugar taste.
Originally we only offered this coffee in a medium roast, which seemed to us to be the optimal roast point. However, after seeing what some of our coffee shop and baristas have done with it for competitions, we were inspired to go into R&D and explore more roast options again. The result is the new Harlequin Roast. This is a base of slow-roasted Dark beans with 33% Light-Medium (City Roast) beans. This new roast really pops the brown sugar, caramel and chocolate notes.
The Medium Roast is milder and hits an optimal roast point; the Harlequin Roast is bolder and broadens the palate.
We are proud to be the only USA importers making this coffee available within the USA for local shipping. 8 oz roasted coffee. Please select ground or whole bean and your preferred roast.
