Getting product details...

Elegance reigns supreme in this double fully washed Typica from the award winning folk of Montey Copey. Juicy mango and peach aromas are balanced by a brown sugar and vanilla finish with a crisp complex acidity.

La Bandera de Dota (the flag of Dota) is a micro-region deep within the famed Dota valley of Tarrazu, and as the name suggests the people of La Bandera are proud of their heritage. Central to that heritage is coffee production and production of Typica, the first Arabica variety to be grown in Costa Rica. Of the producers that still gwow some of this old, less productive but great tasting variety, the Montey Copey micro-mill in Bandera has become very well known recently for producing award wining stellar quality coffees. In 2014 Montey Copey not only won the Cup of Excellence in Costa Rica but had its coffee used in the winning World Barista Championship routine.

We're very proud to bring this Typica micro-lot from La Mesa, a section of the Montey Copey farm with steep sloping hills and named with a generous wink, to Artisan Roast. It's a 'double fully washed' coffee in Costa Rican terminology meaning it's been wet fermented and then treated to a post fermentation soak. With the move to eco-pulpers and honey processing high quality coffees processed in this traditional way are very rare, and it's this merging of the tradition with the micro-mill innovation and drive for quality that makes this such a special coffee to us.

In the cup the high pungent floral aromatics of mango give way to succulent stone fruit flavours of peach, apricot with back notes of tangerine and red grape. A dense juicy brown sugar sweetness supports these aromas and a medium to high effervescent acidity supports the sweet juicy nature of this coffee.

When do we roast your coffee?

We roast at least every Monday and Wednesday (roasting days). Our cut off for planning orders for roasting is 2pm on a roasting date. If an order is received after this cut off it will be prioritised on the next roasting day. Most items will be dispatched the next day (Tuesday and Thursday). If we cannot deliver the goods within this time we will tell you immediately and agree on another time for delivery. If we cannot agree on another time, we will offer you a refund. We use a range of different roaster sizes so we can batch roast exactly what we need for that day. This means that no coffee will leave our roastery older than the previous working day.

Delivery Method

We send your coffee by Royal Mail 1st Class post, which aims to deliver within 1 working day. This is not a guarantee but an aim. Royal Mail will not class an item as lost or missing for 15 working days. Please get in touch if you have not received your order within 7 working days of dispatch. For International delivery to Europe we use the Royal Mail International Standard service. This has a delivery aim of 5-10 days.
