  • Costa Rican Tarrazu

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

Blind Assessment: A low-toned sweetness balances a discreet acidity. Full body, rich spiciness in the cup. The vanilla-nut tones in the aroma resurface fleetingly in the aftertaste. Unfortunately, an additional odd taste also surfaces, particularly when the coffee is cold. This taste, perhaps a mild processing taint, lowered my rating of this otherwise excellent sample.

Notes: Full body, rich spiciness in the cup where low-toned sweetness balances a discreet acidity. An odd taste surfaces as the coffee cools. Café Society is a microroaster in Dallas, Texas.

Who Should Drink It: Another romantic's Costa Rica. The sweetly complex and the slightly tainted are bound up in Conradian embrace.

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.
