Our Santa Maria de Dota Terrazu estate-grown coffee comes from the home of the elusive Quetzal, the beautifully plumed endangered species. True Tarrazu appellation coffee only comes from three cantons in the highest altitude of the region of Tarrazu, including Santa Maria, that are located in a Cloud Forest (montane) through which many endangered wildlife species migrate. Most of the land is under conservation.
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.
8 oz bags, please choose whole bean or ground. We are generally low on our stock of these beans, due to exporting complications, so we are now only offering it in our favorite Medium Roast.
The best coffee ever
Ordered Tarrazu beans as I discovered the roast on my recent trip to Costa Rice. Len’s did not disappoint. Received fresh and on time. Will reorder regularly and frequently

This has been our office coffee for 5 years
We reviewed a number of coffees suggested by our employees and the Estate (medium roast) won the vote hands down. For 5 years nobody in our office has asked to change the coffee... and we currently have 36 employees. This is a winner!

The Araku Valley of India
India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
