This Canet coffee comes from the Dota Coop Community, Dota meaning high mountain. The ‘Coopedota’ has an 860 strong membership specialising in micro-lots. This is a washed bean harvested between November and March and scores a good 85 by the Speciality Coffee Association. The beans are a mix of Catimor and Caturra and have combined to produce a coffee with, and I quote, “Cocoa, fruity, nutty taste with notes of tangerine-like acidity”, I suspect just what everyone is looking for in a cup of coffee. The Canet Micro-lot is limited to just 50 sacks of green beans each weighing 69 kilos. The Coop is located at Los Santos, in Tarrazu, Ramon Blanco, in 1929 built a small washing station, but in 1960 the growers, under the then name of Santa Maria went to the bank, received a loan, constructed a mill and created a cooperative, Coopedota, the rest as they say is history.
You will receive 100 grams of these roasted beans for £5.00 this will allow you to make between 20 and 40 cups of coffee depending on cup size. Five grams per cup, the quantity of coffee used will be quite personal so these are guidelines only. This works out at between twenty-five pence and twelve pence per cup. We also sell larger quantities of this coffee at a more economical rate, the price per cup will therefore be lower.
