Decaffeinated Costa Rica by PT's Coffee Roasting Co. Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: March 2008
Origin: Costa Rica. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A sweet-toned, gently acidy, lyric medium-roasted coffee struggling with the dampening impact of decaffeination. Orange, white wine, and temperate fruit notes, pear perhaps, almost succeed in soaring over a decaf woodiness.

Notes: No decaffeination process is listed, suggesting that this Costa Rica was decaffeinated by the conventional or direct solvent method. PT's is a quality-oriented wholesale/retail specialty roaster with a wide and refined selection of coffee blends and origins. The PT's motto is "without the love, it's just coffee." Visit or call 888-678-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A classic medium-roasted Costa Rica breakfast cup carrying just a little decaf baggage.


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.
