Deep, pungent aroma: raisin, walnut, fresh-cut fir. Round, muted acidity; medium body. Quite sweet in the cup, with a crisp, cocoaish chocolate complicating continued walnut and fir notes. Flavor and sweetness carry impressively into a long, roundly rich finish.
Grown and processed on the La Candelilla Estate in Costa Rica’s famous Tarrazú growing region. This sample consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading. The Roasterie is a longtime leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.
