Batdorf & Bronson
Organic Fair-Trade Costa Rica
|Roaster Location:||Olympia, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Tarrazu growing region, Central Costa Rica|
|Review Date:||August 2005|
Muted aroma with notes that Ken called "quietly pungent" and co-cupper Rodger "smoky." Ken also found pleasantly floral top notes as well. In the cup substantial body and smooth mouthfeel; the pungent notes in the aroma reappear as nut (Rodger) or semi-sweet chocolate (Ken). Simple, sweet short finish, very slight astringency in the long.
Certified organically grown and Fair-Traded, meaning small-holding farmers have been paid a formula-determined fair or economically sustainable price for their coffee. In this case the farmers are part of a cooperative of 42 family-owned farms in the distinguished, high-altitude Tarrazu growing region. Batdorf & Bronson is a premium wholesale specialty roaster with a long and honorable commitment to quality and sound relationships with growers.
