Bean Box Breakdown

Traditionally prized for their soft bouquets of fruit and floral notes, Costa Rica continues to grow more coffees that push the envelope of flavor: honey processing can produce fantastic fruit flavors that stand toe-to-toe with those of the brightest African coffees.

In this distinctive, drinkable cup, a smooth body of nutty caramel finishes with a bright, unexpected note of sweet cherry candy. Costa Rica Dota is a brand new offering from Middle Fork. Caramelized to perfection, this rich medium roast marries traditional Central American appeal with a touch of the unexpected. It's a coffee you can enjoy everyday with a lot more personality than you'd expect from the average cup of joe... or cup of José!

Middle Fork Roasters Story

Costa Rica Dota Red Honey comes from the Cooperativa de Caficultores de Dota (CoopeDota), which was founded in 1960 and has 850 members. CoopeDota strives for a sustainable economic impact in the community through the creation of jobs. This regional blend has undergone "red honey" processing, which enhances the richness of body and develops sweet flavors. Notes of brown sugar, cherry, and sweet almond syrup.

"Good coffee but not very memorable -- for being on the sweeter side it was lacking in intensity. Too light for my taste. " (3 out of 5)

"I love the subtle notes of cherry and caramel in this roast. It still has a lovely, obvious coffee flavor as well! Yum!" (5 out of 5)

"This a a very smooth medium roast that I could drink anytime. It had a sweet cocoa background with nutty undertones. I normally like a touch of cream in my coffee but this was so perfect all on its own. " (5 out of 5)

"Definite nutty taste (and aftertaste!) which I thoroughly enjoyed. Its sweetness contrasts surprisingly with the full-bodied smoothness of the coffee, as well as contrasting with the nuttiness--it is sweet but not too sweet. I agree that it is a distinctive coffee! Made with a moka pot." (5 out of 5)

"The Red Honey was more than a 4 and less than a 5. That said, I'd be happy to drink it again. The slight sweetness came thru, as did a little nut-like flavor. " (4 out of 5)

"Wow, I loved this roast! It is definitely a medium roast with lots of flavor. I brewed it both with an AeroPress and with a pour over. " (5 out of 5)

"My husband really liked this medium roast brewed in a French press. It had a nutty, caramel taste, low acidity w/lots of body. For me, it was too bold even brewed in a pour over. We both liked the Costa Rica Los Angeles by Zoka and thought this one might come close but missed the mark for both of us" (3 out of 5)

"This is one of my new favorites! Very smooth - I pick up a nutty flavor with this one as it cools I can taste the caramel and brown sugar. I can't taste the cherry, but I am currently using a drip maker but looking to try this one in a french press and that might make a difference. " (5 out of 5)

"A friend shared this one with me, and I'm glad she did. The caramel and the almond really come through. Very drinkable and smooth with a clean finish. One of my favorites." (5 out of 5)
