Blind Assessment: Sweet, crisp, fruit-toned. Raspberry, cocoa nib, orange zest, magnolia, fir in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with round acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to cocoa-toned raspberry and fir.
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 berry-centered natural-process Costa Rica cup with delicate cocoa, floral and aromatic wood notes.
