Sweet, delicately crisp. Walnut, fresh-cut fir, carob, raisin, a spicy floral hint in aroma and in the cup, where the carob sweetens and rounds toward chocolate. Quiet, backgrounded acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Drying though sweet-toned finish.
From the Dota Cooperative, with which Allegro has a long-standing relationship dating back to the 1990’s. Funds from the sale of this coffee go to support Earth University, a private non-profit university in Costa Rica devoted to sustainability and agricultural sciences. This coffee is Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Allegro Coffee, a subsidiary of Whole Foods Market, offers one of the country's largest selections of single-origin coffees. Visit www.allegrocoffee.com or call 800-227-1107 for more information.
