Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: June 2002
Origin: Tres Rios growing region, Costa Rica. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: For Ken (rating 86) this coffee is "classic but rather blunt. Pear and caramel notes in the nose but little nuance in the cup." Kevin (rating 90) acknowledges its limitations, but admires it greatly nonetheless: "Floral and caramel aromatic notes, medium-full body. Not complex but beautifully balanced, showing further sweetness as it cools."

Notes: Bucks County Coffee has managed to stay close to its micro-roasting roots throughout its expansion from a small roasting machine in a carriage house to one of the country's largest regional specialty coffee chains. Visit or call 800-844-8790 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Classicists who value the simple, intact gesture over the complex and ambiguous.


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.
