Las Brumas Rainforest Coffee
Costa Rica Dark Roast
|Roaster Location:||Agua Buena, Costa Rica|
|Coffee Origin:||Puntarenas Province, southeastern Costa Rica|
|Review Date:||February 2008|
Blind Assessment: Simple aroma but very sweet-toned, gently pungent, with flower and butter notes. In the cup medium bodied with silky mouthfeel and continued distinct floral notes and hints of caramel and chocolate. Stays on the rich side of astringent in the slightly tight but continued sweet finish.
Notes: This coffee is grown, processed and roasted at the Coopepueblos cooperative in the town of Agua Buena, Costa Rica near the border with Panama. Development of the cooperative and its direct sales program of roasted coffee has been supported by the Community Agroecology Network (CAN), a Santa Cruz, California-based "international network committed to sustaining rural livelihoods and environments by integrating participatory research, action education and trade innovations."

Who Should Drink It: A gentle dark-roasted coffee for those who prefer charm to challenge. Go easy on sweetener or whitener.
