Costa Rica Tarrazu
|Roaster Location:||Hanover Park, Illinois|
|Review Date:||June 2002|
Blind Assessment: Ken (rating 82) praises this coffee's "powerful acidity, big body, rich, wine-toned fruit," but complains "the acidity may be a touch bitter, finish astringent." Kevin (rating 85) is succinctly affirmative: "Caramel, nice acid-body balance, plush, simple, pure."
Notes: Coffeemaria is a boutique micro-roaster that, via its website, sells coffee roasted to order and same-day shipped. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a classically simple, acidy, slightly fruity American-style breakfast cup.
