This delicious coffee is open and expressive. Bright and lively acidity on the high end, deep, rich textures on the low end and a pleasant current of well balanced flavors and body in the middle. Look for notes of dried cherry, orange, caramel and milk chocolate.

Roasting: We prefer this coffee like most Costa Rican coffees in the lighter ranges. Start with a City or City + roast (light to medium light) or near the end of 1st crack. You can take it up to Full City (medium) for a bit less crisp front end and a touch more body. Avoid darker roasts (2nd crack onwards) or you'll lose the more subtle flavors like orange that this coffee offers.
Reminder! This coffee is raw, you must roast it before brewing
Our Review: "Here is something special from the southern half of Costa Rica where a group of 280 producers, each with just a few acres of land, have pulled their resources to form a cooperative called Cooperativa Agroindustrial y de Servicios Múltiples de San Antonio, Pérez Zeledón R.L. (COOPEASSA R.L.). They cultivate an incredibly diverse range of organic produce including; bananas, pineapples, oranges, ginger, turmeric, rambutan and coffee. The coffee production comes from 75 producer-members who focus their attention on organic farm management throughout the year and then deliver their harvested cherries to the COOPEASSA mill where traceability and quality control are second to none. The wet-mill is designed to receive cherries from many small farms and consistently process this well balanced regional blend." - Royal Coffee
The first word that popped into my head while drinking this coffee was "expressive"! For me, that means there is a broad range of flavors and attributes I'm detecting, yet they are all working together in harmony. The bright, shiny highs are crisp and clear with sweet notes of orange that borders on zesty. The deep notes are well defined and pleasant with great body and rich dried cherry. And right there in the middle is a lovely indulgent current of caramel and milk chocolate. It's like hearing a choir sing!
