Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet, brightly tart. Tamarind, pineapple taffy, almond, lime zest, magnolia in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with brisk acidity; very smooth, syrupy mouthfeel. Crisply fruity finish with undertones of almond butter.
Notes: Produced by Danilo Salazar Arias of Finca Naranjo and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Founded in 1994, Coffee By Design is a specialty coffee roaster in Portland, Maine that also operates three coffee shops in town, as well as one in Freeport. Visit www.coffeebydesign.com.
The Bottom Line: This natural-processed Costa Rica leads with tart fruit, balanced by rich nut and sweet floral tones.
