Blind Assessment: Bright, richly sweet-tart, fruit-toned. Pomegranate, dark chocolate, lilac, almond, amber in aroma and small cup. Bright structure with juicy, vibrant acidity; plush, creamy mouthfeel. Sweetly tart finish with leading notes of pomegranate and almond. Crisply chocolaty, floral finish.
Notes: Produced by Danilo Salazar Arias of San Cristobal Farm, from the Catuai, Caturra and Villa Sarchi varieties of Arabica, 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: A lively, juicy-bright natural-processed Costa Rica cup with inviting fruit and floral notes throughout.
