|Roaster Location:||Philadelphia, Pennsylvania|
|Coffee Origin:||Central Costa Rica.|
|Review Date:||February 2003|
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
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.
