Blind Assessment: Ken (rating 87) praises this "high-toned, crisply balanced dark roast with a shimmer of grapefruit in the nose and chocolate in the cup." Kevin (rating 87) also likes it: "Excellent deep-but-not-dark-roast coffee. Syrupy depth, creamy body, good supporting acidity, rich cocoa and nut flavors."

Notes: Café Britt is a pioneering Costa-Rica-based specialty coffee roaster that successfully combines coffee tourism at its mill outside San Jose, Costa Rica with production of skillfully sourced and roasted Costa Rica coffee. Visit or call 800-462-7488 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a balanced roast taste that complements rather than dominates the coffee.


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.
