Tarrazu is one of four districts
near Costa Rica’s capital city of San
Jose that grow premium specialty coffee.
The other three are Tres Rios, Heredia
and Alajuela. El Conquistador coffee is
grown in what is called the "dota"
sub-region of Tarrazu. It is exceptionally
high grown (6000 ft!) in a bowl shaped
valley of volcanic soils that create its
own micro-climate, thus giving the coffee
a unique character. Medium bodied, nutty-like
cocoa notes with pleasant aftertaste.
A powerful coffee it is.
(unless requested otherwise). Great for
pour-over, French press, and drip brewing.
