Costa Rica by Torreo Coffee Review |

    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • Costa Rica

Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2003
Origin: Central Costa Rica. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The roast nicely develops the clean, classically simple Costa Rica profile, rounding the sweet but authoritative acidity and turning a hint of fruit tartly pineapple-toned. Torreo owner Eric Patrick finds "floral [and] rich Burgundy" notes in this versatile cup.

Notes: From San Miguel estate. Torreo is a quality oriented, mainly wholesale specialty roaster serving the larger Philadelphia area. Visit or call 888-2-TORREO for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Its strong structure and pronounced but rounded acidity should make this coffee appealing to those lovers of breakfast-style coffees who take their cup with milk or whitener.


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.
