Blind Assessment:

Roasty-sweet, spice-toned. Banana, orange blossom, cocoa powder, scorched cedar, molasses in aroma and cup. Bittersweet structure with a brisk touch of acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish leads with notes of cocoa and orange blossom in the short, with scorched cedar and molasses in the long.

Notes:

A washed-process coffee produced entirely of the Castillo variety of Arabica. Costco is a membership-only wholesaler and retailer with stores in most areas of the United States. Visit www.costco.com for more information.

The Bottom Line: A deftly dark-roasted Colombia coffee with spicy florals, tropical fruit notes, and a deep molasses-like sweetness.
