Roast: Medium Review Date: June 1998
Origin: Costa Rica Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Pleasantly full, rich, low-toned, complete in the bottom registers. Ambiguous grace notes, however: They read as earthy when the coffee is hot, but turn hard and mildly unpleasant as the cup cools. Probably a storage fault. Still, a coffee with power and dimension.

Notes: This coffee is pleasantly full, rich, low-toned, and complete in the bottom registers. Ambiguous grace notes, which read earthy when hot, but turn hard and mildly unpleasant as the cup cools. The Coffee Beanery is a franchise with nearly two hundred locations.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of dubious Sulawesies and murky Sumatras: The low-toned richness and earthy tones of this coffee suggest certain Indonesia coffees rather than Costa Ricas.

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.
