Seattle's Best Coffee
Costa Rica Taparto
A big, centered, complete Central-America- style coffee. Brightly acidy in the upper ranges, richly sweet in the lower, with hints of flowers and cedar in the nose and distinct chocolate in the finish. Displayed its true character as it cooled -- rather than falling apart, it opened up, revealing still more nuance.
Good Costa Rican coffee. Seattle 's Best Coffee is a large, quality-oriented roaster and retailer founded in 1971.
Who Should Drink It
A coffee for almost any occasion, although its power and completeness may intimidate some palates.
