  • Costa Rica Juan Viñas

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

Blind Assessment: Impressive because, unlike many of the coffees in the cupping, it displays some acidy brightness. May not generate enough sweetness to round the acidity, however, leaving the cup just a touch on the sour side. Not much nuance but solid body.

Notes: Excellent breakfast coffee with acidy brightness, solid body. Juan Viñas is a well-established grower in the Turrialba region, east of San Jose. Unlike the Tarrazu and Tres Rios regions, which receive their weather from the Pacific, Turrialba is oriented toward the somewhat wetter Caribbean side of the peninsula. G

Who Should Drink It: Should make an excellent breakfast coffee in the dry, straightforward American tradition.


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.
