Roast: NA Review Date: September 1998
Origin: Costa Rica Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A fresh, clean, delightfully natural sweetness is balanced by a drier but still fruity pungency. A fine and distinctive coffee, though memorable more for what it gives out front than what it insinuates. The profile is immediate and pleasing rather than deep.

Notes: From the oldest specialty roaster in Connecticut, this Doka coffee displays a fresh, clean, delightfully natural sweetness, which is balanced by a drier but still fruity pungency. A fine and distinctive coffee, though memorable more for its ingratiating Doka coffees like this one are typically sweet and fruity, a characteristic apparently owing to a regional variation in the fermenting/washing process. Some purists label this fruitiness a defect, but given the quality of the best Dokas that judgement is

Who Should Drink It: A fine coffee for those who prefer sweetness without sugar, and for whom the more typical high-grown Central America coffees are too dryly imposing.
