Ken (rating 86) writes: "Sweetly acidy and floral, with roasty chocolate notes - think chocolate-covered flowers. Acidity may be a touch overbearing, finish a bit heavy." Kevin (rating 86) is not excited: "Medium-bodied, straightforward, a bit dusty and chalky."
This coffee is grown on one of numerous small, well manicured coffee farms on the eastern outskirts of San Jose, Costa Rica's capital. It is from the current year's crop. Flying Goat Coffee is a boutique retail/wholesale roaster located in the wine country of northern California. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Those patient enough to wait three or four months, at which time this perhaps too fresh coffee may soften and expand to its full promise. Not sure why I got chocolate and Kevin got chalk, however.
