La Minita Costa Rica
|Roaster Location:||Acton, Massachusetts|
|Coffee Origin:||Tarrazu growing region, central Costa Rica.|
|Review Date:||December 2007|
Delicately but richly nuanced throughout the profile with cherryish fruit, flowers, honey, milk chocolate. In the cup the acidity is tart but luxuriously sweet and the mouthfeel lightly syrupy. Flavor saturated and flawless finish.
La Minita Estate is perhaps the most consistently celebrated of single farm or "estate" coffees, and the one that some two decades ago, under the leadership of William McAlpin, pioneered the concept of single-estate coffees. This seems a particularly and impressively nuanced version of the great La Minita profile. Terroir is a microroaster selling only elite single-origin coffees, no blends. It specializes in medium roast styles designed to foreground the character of the green coffee. Terroir is the creation of George Howell, one of the world's leading coffee visionaries.
