Blind Assessment: This coffee could be condemned for its lack of power or admired for its soft refinement and vanilla- and nut-toned sweetness. I bought in on the sweetness side. The vanilla-nut tones displayed remarkable persistence, complicating the aroma and lingering in the aftertaste with surprisingly clarity and richness.

Notes: A coffee both subtly luxurious and soberly honest with vanilla and nut-toned sweetness from the aroma through the aftertaste with clarity and richness. Certified organically grown and shade-grown.

Who Should Drink It: A coffee both subtly luxurious and soberly honest: in other words, a good breakfast coffee in the East-Coast and Midwestern tradition. I hardly would have guessed that this was a Costa-Rica, but the charm of organic programs is the way they bring interesting but atypical coffees out of the woods and into the larger specialty market.

Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
