The Captain's Coffee
From the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica, this coffee is mild, sweet and well balanced. Everyone will love this easy drinking coffee, whether iced or hot.

Body & Texture: Medium to full bodied, creamy mouthfeel
Flavors: Caramel, milk chocolate, orange

Recommendation: This is a "go-to" coffee that everyone will love. Easy drinking as a hot morning cup and refreshing as an iced coffee.
Our Review: This delightful coffee comes to us from the aptly named CoopeTarrazu, located in (you guessed it) the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. CoopeTarrazu currently consists of over 2,600 farmers who have joined together for all the opportunities and flexibility the coop is able to offer them, including access to better loans and farming supplies as well as greater access to a larger coffee market. The coop is then able to provide the final coffee consumers with the very best of all their member's crops, resulting in this delicious cup called La Pastora.
Costa Rica is synonymous with world class coffee and this coffee is no exception. It's got a bit more body and creamy texture than we usually find in Costa Rican coffees but still maintains the mild acidity and great balance we've come to expect. The aroma of sweet caramel absolutely fills the room and this cup is just so....drinkable! This is a coffee everyone will enjoy, whether it's a hot first cup of the day or a refreshing afternoon iced coffee.
