La Pastora is the Costa Rican coffee you talk about when you talk about Costa Rican coffee. This washed coffee is approachable, clean, and classic with a juicy twist. With just enough nuttiness to temper the syrupy, plummy sweetness, the La Pastora is the perfect subject for whichever brew method has your fancy.

Where it's from

La Pastora caught our attention at the cupping table with its uniform flavor, attributed to the singular soil quality of the San Jose province of Costa Rica, and the processing methods that CoopeTarrazu employs. Sedimentary soil composition encourages coffee crops toward a distinct acidity, and this rich mountain soil creates a complex fruit to be harvested and processed by CoopeTarrazú. The co-op represents over 3,500 partners in the province, and is committed to the welfare of those partners and their communities. We roast their coffee to bring out its syrupy, balanced character, finding gingersnap, almond, and plum in the cup.

My brother-in-law is Costa Rican and he insists that real coffee only comes from his homeland. He just might be right.

An Absolute Delight

This was an incredible coffee in every method I brewed it, and at nearly every grind level. Well-balanced, intriguing, somewhat spicy. Delicious hot or iced!
