  • Costa Rica Taparto

Roast: NA Review Date: June 2000
Origin: Costa Rica. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A big, centered, complete Central-America- style coffee. Brightly acidy in the upper ranges, richly sweet in the lower, with hints of flowers and cedar in the nose and distinct chocolate in the finish. Displayed its true character as it cooled -- rather than falling apart, it opened up, revealing still more nuance.

Notes: Good Costa Rican coffee. Seattle 's Best Coffee is a large, quality-oriented roaster and retailer founded in 1971.

Who Should Drink It: A coffee for almost any occasion, although its power and completeness may intimidate some palates.


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.
