Lemon, crisply cocoaish chocolate, dry-roasted nut in aroma and cup. Balanced, well-integrated acidity, smoothly silky mouthfeel. Cleanly rich finish.
The name Sombra Del Poro, or shade of the poro, refers to a type of shade tree grown in the Tarrazu region. This coffee is Rainforest Alliance Certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Caribou Coffee is a large (second largest in the U.S. after Starbucks) retail roasting chain based in the upper Middle West whose rather irreverent motto "Life is short. Stay awake for it" belies a serious approach to coffee. Visit
