Blind Assessment: Delicately fruit-toned, richly tart. Raspberry jam, cocoa nib, lime, honeysuckle, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with juicy acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to pleasing berry and citrus notes supported by cocoa nib.
Notes: Produced by Oscar and Francisca Chacon entirely from trees of the Caturra variety of Arabica; certified organically grown. Processed by the “natural” or dry method, meaning the beans were dried inside the entire fruit rather than after the soft fruit residue has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. Located in southwestern Colorado, Durango Coffee lays claim to a rich coffee history that dates to 1986. Its motto is “Tough Town, Great Coffee.” Visit www.durangocoffee.com or call 800-748-2275 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A fruit-centric natural-processed Costa Rica cup with a cocoa throughline and complex spicy-floral undertones.
