|Roaster Location:||Fort Bragg, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Costa Rica|
|Review Date:||November 1997|
A superbly balanced coffee, with a low-toned, slightly winy acidity, a touch of vanilla in the nose, and a solid, dark-roast bottom with little in the way of carbony distraction.
A shade-grown coffee which is superbly balanced, with a low-toned slightly winy acidity, a touch of vanilla in the nose and solid, dark-roast bottom. Grade: Strictly Hard Bean. The package indicates that the American Birding Association verifies this as a shade-grown coffee, supporting habitat for migrating song birds.

Who Should Drink It
Classicists who want some dark-roast character to go with their Costa-Rican clarity. In its self-contained balance a prototypical Costa Rica, although it lacks the ringing power of the very best Costa Ricas.
