|Roaster Location:||Branford, Connecticut|
|Coffee Origin:||Tarrazu growing region, central Costa Rica.|
|Review Date:||October 2009|
Blind Assessment: Sweet, roundly pungent aroma with notes of caramel and flowers. Richly balanced acidity; medium body with a gently silky mouthfeel. Sustained flavor of apricot with hints of flowers, berry and chocolate. The fruit and chocolate merge in a dry, slightly tart finish.
Notes: Prize winner in the 2009 Costa Rica Cup of Excellence competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed first out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 90.00 from an international jury. The "1900" refers to the elevation, in meters, in which this coffee was grown. Willoughby's Coffee & Tea is a pioneer specialty coffee roaster reinvigorated and refocused on artisan roasting and a very extensive collection of elite single-origin coffees.
