  • Costa Rican Tarrazu

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

Blind Assessment: The exhilarating vanilla-nut tones in the aroma together with the heavy, buttery body are the main pleasures here. Otherwise the profile is solid to the point of stolidity. The acidity is pleasant but lacks nuance, the flavor a bit monolithic, and the aftertaste clean but simple.

Notes: The exhilarating vanilla-nut tones in the aroma together with the heavy, buttery body are the main pleasure here. Otherwise the profile is solid, and the flavor a bit monolithic, with a clean but simple aftertaste. Tarrazu is one of the classic Costa Rica growing regions, located west of San Jose.

Who Should Drink It: Whether this Tarrazu is classic or ordinary depends on one's expectations. My expectations put it somewhere in-between.

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.
