Blind Assessment: Well-balanced aroma with suggestions of dark chocolate, nut and a muted hint of fruit. Rich, low-toned acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Nut and chocolate carry into the cup where the fruit becomes more pronounced, revealing berry and citrus complication. Fruit-toned, semi-sweet chocolate dominates in the clean finish.
Notes: Processed by the Rio Jorco Micro Mill, this single-estate Costa Rica is made up entirely of the Caturra variety of Arabica. Calgary-based Fratello is a second-generation boutique coffee roaster owned by three brothers who focus on responsible trade relationships with coffee growers. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A balanced, quietly complex coffee.
