|Roaster Location:||Topeka, Kansas|
|Coffee Origin:||Costa Rica.|
|Review Date:||March 2008|
Blind Assessment: A sweet-toned, gently acidy, lyric medium-roasted coffee struggling with the dampening impact of decaffeination. Orange, white wine, and temperate fruit notes, pear perhaps, almost succeed in soaring over a decaf woodiness.
Notes: No decaffeination process is listed, suggesting that this Costa Rica was decaffeinated by the conventional or direct solvent method. PT's is a quality-oriented wholesale/retail specialty roaster with a wide and refined selection of coffee blends and origins. The PT's motto is "without the love, it's just coffee."

Who Should Drink It: A classic medium-roasted Costa Rica breakfast cup carrying just a little decaf baggage.
