Blind Assessment: Brisk, cidery. Apple cider, fresh-cut fir, caramel, mint, a hint of hop flowers in aroma and cup. Round, brisk acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Remains crisp but sweetens and brightens in an apple- and fir-dominated finish.
Notes: Certified organically grown. From the Las Lajas micromill. A dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees.

The Bottom Line: A discreet ferment turns the fruit toward cider in this crisp natural-process Costa Rica.
