Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet, subtly tart, nuanced. Ripe blueberry, freesia-like flowers, almond, fresh-cut cedar, nougat in aroma and cup. Sweetly fruit-toned structure with round acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Finish consolidates to notes of blueberry and nougat with undertones of cedar.
Notes: Produced by Oscar and Francisca Chacon from trees of the Caturra and Catuai varieties of Arabica; certified organically grown. Processed by the red honey method, meaning that some fruit flesh (“honey”) was allowed to adhere to the beans during drying. 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 sweet, multi-layered Costa Rica cup, its rich fruit amplified by skillful red honey processing.
