Blind Assessment: Deep-toned, quietly complex. Sweet flowers, caramel, apple in aroma and cup. Rich, round, but authoritative acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Impressively long, resonant, sweet finish.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. It was grown on Finca Las Gravileas in Costa Rica’s famous Tarrazú growing region. Wicked Joe is a micro-roaster based in Maine with a mission of providing its customers with "epic coffee ... that is kind to both the earth and to the farmers." Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy sensory depth and quiet authority. Rich and balanced when taken black, but should handle whitener well.
