Oregon Coffee Roaster
Costa Rican Tarrazu
|Roaster Location:||North Plains, Oregon|
|Review Date:||June 1998|
Blind Assessment: Fine vanilla-nut nose and substantial body; otherwise a coffee without much lift, nuance, or development. Muted acidity, with only a sort of pruny pungency to complicate the cup.
Notes: Fine vanilla-nut node and substantial body, muted acidity with a heavy, blunt, body. Oregon Coffee Roaster is a microroaster near Portland, Oregon.
Who Should Drink It: A good but typical small-roaster West-Coast coffee: heavy-bodied, pungent, blunt. Not burned, but a good deal of the sweetness and nuance probably went up the roaster chimney. To my taste best brewed in a French press and drunk with milk.
