Café Society Coffee
Costa Rican Tarrazu
|Roaster Location:||Dallas, Texas|
|Review Date:||June 1998|
Blind Assessment: A low-toned sweetness balances a discreet acidity. Full body, rich spiciness in the cup. The vanilla-nut tones in the aroma resurface fleetingly in the aftertaste. Unfortunately, an additional odd taste also surfaces, particularly when the coffee is cold. This taste, perhaps a mild processing taint, lowered my rating of this otherwise excellent sample.
Notes: Full body, rich spiciness in the cup where low-toned sweetness balances a discreet acidity. An odd taste surfaces as the coffee cools. Café Society is a microroaster in Dallas, Texas.
Who Should Drink It: Another romantic's Costa Rica. The sweetly complex and the slightly tainted are bound up in Conradian embrace.
