Blind Assessment:

Invitingly fruity and nutty. Blood orange, almond brittle, Darjeeling, sassafras in aroma and cup. Juicy and buoyant acidity; full, velvety mouthfeel. Almond and sassafras carry far into the finish.

Notes:

Finca Santa Lucia is a fifteen-acre coffee farm located in the Valle Central (Central Valley) region of Costa Rica. This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying. Based in the San Diego area, Bird Rock Coffee Roasters is a retailer and wholesaler focused on organic and socially responsible coffees; it was awarded the “2012 Micro Roaster of the Year” title from Roast Magazine.

Who Should Drink It: Those who value a cup with graceful balance between bright, juicy citrus and crisp nut.
