About the Coffee...

This washed coffee was produced by Volcafe Way certified smallholders in Paramo's Pérez Zeledón department. Small coffee farms dot the southeastern slopes of the Talamanca mountain range where this lot was cultivated. After ripe red coffee cherries were picked, they were then delivered to receiving stations. These cherries were fully washed at the Beneficio El General regional mill.
Coffee is central to Pérez Zeledón's history. It was brought to the region and cultivated by migrants from the Central Valley, towards the end of the 19th century. The settlers found the climate conditions and richness of the soil ideal for coffee and other crops. Coffee significantly contributed to the social and economic development of Pérez Zeledón and generated a culture of values and principles built on family unity.
A dream transpires with hard work, determination, and a lot of coffee!
The founders of Dancing Ox Coffee Roasters, JP and Lauren, weren't always tasting their way to perfect a craft. After 20 years of competitive ballroom dancing, these Professional World and United States Champions traded in the limelight for coffee beans.
They share a love of coffee, travel, and artistry so naturally the coffee world for them, quickly evolved into their preferred outlet for passion and creativity. After an inspirational trip to Costa Rica they found their true calling. "Coffee can be just as dynamic as dancing,” says Lauren, “a cup of coffee holds a world of nuances, rhythms, and emotions.” Artful roasting reveals those worlds for JP, explaining "The complexity of a coffee bean and developing its roasting potential is an art with no boundaries."
Together, JP and Lauren bring their showman work ethic and rhythmic hearts in delivering beautiful roasts. Proudly roasting in Belmont, North Carolina, Dancing Ox Coffee Roasters have mindfully selected beans from among the world's best tasting coffee varieties to ensure your inspiration.
