Costa Rica Cafetin San Martin
San Martin is a small village at the end of a dirt road, not located on any official map, situated on a high mountain ridge in the famed Tarrazu coffee-growing region of Costa Rica. This cup is brilliant and clear, with a caramel and nut roast flavor at City roast, becoming even sweeter at City+ level. It's an elegant cup with berry fruit emerging, a bit of Mora (a Latin blackberry), some apple brightness, and a very refined, clear sweetness. There is a slightly ripe fruit/winey aspect to the cup, suggesting very mature coffee cherry selection, light body but silky in texture. This is not a powerhouse, but a very sweet and refined competition-level coffee. City+ roast.
