  • Cerro Paldo Tarrazu Costa Rica

Roast: Medium Review Date: July 2013
Origin: Tarrazu growing region, central Costa Rica Price: $16.00/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Crisply complex. Butter, cherry, pungent cedar, dark chocolate, a hint of sweet dusk-blooming flowers in aroma and cup. Round, floral-toned acidity; light but very silky mouthfeel. Deep, flavor-saturated, though distinctly dry finish.

Notes: Bard Coffee is a coffeehouse and roasting company based in Portland, Maine, focused on distinctive single-origin coffees.

Who Should Drink It: Should appeal to coffee classicists who want just a hint of the lushly exotic in their classic Central America cup.
