Coffee Review - Organic Costa Rica Las Lajas by Doma Coffee
  • Doma Coffee Roasting

    Post Falls, Idaho
  • Organic Costa Rica Las Lajas Natural Process

Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2011
Origin: Central Valley, Costa Rica. Price: $15.40/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Very sweet; delicate but lush. Minty milk chocolate and apricot- and peach-like fruit in aroma and cup. Softly bright acidity; smoothly silky, lively mouthfeel. Round, gently resonant finish.

Notes: Produced using certified organic growing methods by third-generation coffee farmer Francisca Salas and her family. This is a dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with the wet-processed or "washed" coffees more typical of Costa Rica. Doma Coffee Roasting specializes in organic and Fair-Trade certified coffees and takes pride in a rigorous program of recycling and environmentally responsible business practices. The Doma slogan is "Coffee/Culture/Meaning." Visit or call 208-667-1267 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Naturally sweet but crisply nuanced, a coffee for lovers of soft, subtly complex white table wines.
