At Caffe Luxxe, exploring the origins of our coffee is an important step in genuinely understanding our product, and appreciating the tremendous amount of work and care that takes place at the farm level. We seek out opportunities to visit our farmer partners as often as possible. 

Caffe Luxxe’s roasting team recently traveled to Costa Rica to hand select our latest single origin coffee sourced from CoopeDota, the world’s first certified carbon-neutral coffee farm co-op located in Dota, a subregion known for its high quality coffee within the larger Tarrazú region of San Jose. 

Featuring a sweet aroma of chocolate, honey and citrus and a juicy, floral flavor profile of stone fruit and milk chocolate, this medium-bodied coffee presents a crisp, bright and balanced acidity and a clean, lingering finish.

“In many cases, people only focus on the final step of a coffee’s journey: The coffee in our cup. But as a coffee professional and a roaster, having a strong connection to coffee origins is incredibly important for us at Caffe Luxxe. Developing a genuine relationship with the people who produce our coffees firsthand, as well as working with farmers who ensure responsible and fair labor practices and social mobility for their workers, all serves to make us better stewards of the coffee we serve every day.”
-Ryan Mahlstedt, Caffe Luxxe Head Roaster
