Curator's Notes

La Pastora begins with a juicy plum sweetness, like a dollop of jam on a thumbprint cookie, before developing into a balanced, nut-buttery finish. The name translates to shepherd — let this light roast shepherd you into a beautiful day

Roaster's Notes

$18 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.

"I'm surprised to see the other reviewers did not enjoy this coffee as much as me, personally I thought it was smooth, very unique, fruity, with a nutty finish. Made on a Breville barista Express with 2% milk."

"The hints of almond are stronger than advertised, missing that balance. "
