First Colony Coffee & Tea
Costa Rican Tarrazu
|Roaster Location:||Norfolk, Virginia|
|Review Date:||June 1998|
The exhilarating vanilla-nut tones in the aroma together with the heavy, buttery body are the main pleasures here. Otherwise the profile is solid to the point of stolidity. The acidity is pleasant but lacks nuance, the flavor a bit monolithic, and the aftertaste clean but simple.

Who Should Drink It
Whether this Tarrazu is classic or ordinary depends on one's expectations. My expectations put it somewhere in-between.
