Very sweet but tartly balanced profile, dominated by a distinctive, deeply floral-saturated cocoa and fragrant sandalwood. Rich, sweet acidity, light but lively mouthfeel. The short finish is rich and complex; flavor fades very slightly in the long.
Named after the micro-mill Helsar de Zarcero located in the West Valley of Costa Rica, this lot is made up entirely of the Caturra variety of Arabica. Coava is a Portland based coffee roaster that aims to provide quality coffee and the knowledge needed to properly brew that coffee.

Who Should Drink It
Superb and original profile. Loses just a little in the long finish, but by then who cares.
