Rich, intricate. Roasted cacao nib, tangelo, black cherry, narcissus-like flowers in aroma and cup. Round, deep acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates around the tangelo and cherry in a slightly drying though quite resonant finish.
This is an unusually refined example of a dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees. It is from a mill established by Costa Rica coffee innovator Grace Mena. Temple Coffee is a quality-focused retail and wholesale specialty roaster active in Sacramento, California since 2005.

Who Should Drink It
Anyone who enjoys depth, full mouthfeel and quiet complexity. Aficionados may be particularly interested in sampling a fine, tactfully light-roasted example of a dried-in-the-fruit coffee from Nicaragua, an origin that until now has never produced a high-end version of the type.
