Blind Assessment: Rich, sweet, with a gentle lift from the acidity, complicated by pronounced chocolate fruit tones (think chocolate-covered cherries). The body reads as bigger than it is owing to the general richness of the cup. Not much range or complexity, but a fundamentally pleasing cup.
Notes: Rich, sweet, with a gentle lift from the acidity, complicated by pronounced chocolate fruit tones (think chocolate-covered cherries). Llano Bonito is a high-grown Strictly Hard Bean coffee from the admired Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. Produced by about 500 small-holding farmers. Certified organically grown and Fair-Trade certified. Visit www.thanksgivingcoffee.com or call 800-648-6491 for more information.
Who Should Drink It : As simple but appealing as a youthful smile. Excellent black, but big and rich enough to animate milk.
