Costa Rica El Conquistador is grown in the Dota micro-region of Tarrazu. Hacienda La Minita sources it from small-holder farms and oversees the quality and processing of the beans. They give preference to producers and producer groups who exhibit commitments to local social issues, including worker health and safety, environmental stewardship, dedication to quality, and concern for the health and sustainability of future crops and yields. El Conquistador is their trademarked Dota coffee. They describe it as having the classic piquant acidity and lively, winey flavor expected of the region’s best coffees.
