San Juanillo Costa Rica by Path Coffee Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: August 2013
Origin: San Juan, Naranjo growing region, Costa Rica. Price: $15.79/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Sweetly crisp, briskly floral. Cedar, roasted cacao nib, pungently lavender-like flowers, peach-like fruit in aroma and cup. Clean, crisp acidity; lightly syrupy, lively mouthfeel. Long, flavor-saturated finish.

Notes: Produced by third-generation coffee farmer Carlos Haug from trees of the Caturra and Catuai varieties. Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning this coffee was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Path Coffee Roasters is a New York-based micro-roaster committed to sourcing coffees that speak directly to the region they come from. Visit or call 914-305-3595 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A superb and subtly exotic variation for those who love the pure, classic Central America cup.


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.
