Sanchez Gran Reserva Costa Rica
|Roaster Location:||Curridabat, Costa Rica|
|Coffee Origin:||West-central Costa Rica.|
|Review Date:||February 2003|
Blind Assessment: Sweet, round, balanced, with a striking complex of aromatics that reads as wine or spicy fruit, figs perhaps. The finish is rich, winy, and slightly astringent.
Notes: Cafe Rey is a large Costa Rican roasting company; Cafe Sanchez Gran Reserva is its premium offering. Visit
Who Should Drink It: This dry but spicy, rather low-key cup should make a fine afternoon or evening cup.
