Bucks County Coffee
Costa Rica Tres Rios
|Roaster Location:||Langhorne, Pennsylvania|
|Coffee Origin:||Tres Rios growing region, Costa Rica.|
|Review Date:||June 2002|
Blind Assessment: For Ken (rating 86) this coffee is "classic but rather blunt. Pear and caramel notes in the nose but little nuance in the cup." Kevin (rating 90) acknowledges its limitations, but admires it greatly nonetheless: "Floral and caramel aromatic notes, medium-full body. Not complex but beautifully balanced, showing further sweetness as it cools."
Notes: Bucks County Coffee has managed to stay close to its micro-roasting roots throughout its expansion from a small roasting machine in a carriage house to one of the country's largest regional specialty coffee chains. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Classicists who value the simple, intact gesture over the complex and ambiguous.
