Roast: Medium Review Date: August 2006
Origin: Central Costa Rica Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Intense aroma: tart cherry, caramel, hints of lemon, flowers, chocolate. In the cup delicate and pure: brings the fresh, dusky floral and tart cherry notes of coffee flowers and fruit into the cup with continuing hints of chocolate and lemon. The finish is clean, simple, ingenuous.

Notes: Brumas del Zurqui won the 2006 Costa Rica green coffee competition. The Roasterie is a leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that specializes in building ongoing relationships with growers and that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.

Who Should Drink It: Ideal for those who take iced coffee black, or anyone looking for a refreshing delicacy in a medium-roasted cup.
