Kaffe Magnum Opus
Costa Rican La Minita Estate
|Roaster Location:||Millville, New Jersey|
|Coffee Origin:||Tarrazu growing region, central Costa Rica|
|Review Date:||November 2003|
A tribute to classic balance: pure but substantial, quietly intense without extremes. Gently acidy, deeply rich, discreetly complicated by tightly laced notes of leather, chocolate and fruit.
La Minita is among the world's most admired coffee farms. Proprietor William McAlpin was a pioneer in the practice of branding and marketing fine specialty coffee by estate or farm rather than region or type. Kaffé Magnum Opus is a wholesaler and Internet retailer of quality specialty coffee. Visit
