Costa Rica Amistad


Costa Rican coffees are traditionally known for their sweetness, crisp profiles, and smooth acidity – a little too smooth for some in  specialty coffee circles, who tend to prefer a brighter, more-pointed cup. This has led to the country’s producers implementing new processing techniques, including wild fermentation of ripe cherry. This lot from Roberto Montero of Finca Amistad uses the tried and true wet-process method, with some meticulous mechanical drying, on proven varieties of cherry to produce a refined, sweet, and bright version of the classic Costa Rican profile. We taste dark stone fruit, fig jam, and molasses in a syrupy, accessible cup. Great for your holiday French press, home espresso, and more!

    Due to being an Indonesian coffee I was expecting it to be a little more funky and herbal, but it was surprisingly clean and fruit-forward. This makes a great espresso roast, with the candied nut flavor very apparent in a macchiato through my Gaggia espresso machine at home.
