Santa Maria De Dota, San José

Dota, Costa Rica

Santa Maria sits along the mountainous highlands of south-central Costa Rica, and is about 40 miles south of San José. One of the community's biggest claims to fame is the shade-grown Tarrazu coffee that thrives in the volcanic soil of the area. Coopedota, a local cooperative, is the perfect day trip for any caffeine fanatic. Coopedota is one of the longest-standing and most successful names in the Costa Rican coffee industry - a fact that becomes obvious during a tasting. Since 1865, unique blends have been regarded world-wide as some of the finest.

Need even more of a java boost? The Dota Estate produces exclusive blends on a 13-acre Down to Earth plantation, all uniquely created from red and yellow Arabica Catuai beans. Because of the ideal micro-climate of Santa Maria de Dota, the highly regarded coffee is truly one-of-a-kind. Travelers can go on a day tour, night and day excursion or seven day coffee origin program.
