    Has a tamarindy overtone through with a bit of hazelnut and maybe slightly orange-rindy. Something in between black tea and chocolate as well. I think this is OK but I probably wouldn't order it again.

    Acidity and structure is pretty well balanced. I'm just not wild about any of the taste characteristics as drip. I actually had another coffee, a Honduras from Phil & Sebastian's as espresso that had similar character. So I do wonder if this would work as espresso.

    Cupping Method:Drip at Revival Kitchen + Cafe in Cambridge, MA (Alewife location)

More Details

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
Bean Source Country: Costa Rica
Predominantly grown in the country's high-altitude regions, Costa Rican coffee benefits from the volcanic soil, consistent rainfall, and mild tropical climate, contributing to its rich, well-rounded taste. Costa Rican coffee often features bright acidity, medium body, and complex flavor notes ranging from tropical fruit to citrus, nuttiness, and chocolate.
