Costa Rica El Puente Tarrazu Caturra
Rudolfo placed in this years Costa Rica Cup of Excellence with a different Caturra wet-processed coffee, his farm is at 1600 meters adjacent to Tarrazu. The cup has silky body with sweet glazed almond roast tones, cocoa notes and a touch of almond skin bitterness in the finish that I find pleasant and bracing. It's a very nice cup, and considering that new crop Costa Rica coffees from higher elevation farms are not due until mid-April, it's great to have coffees that cup so vibrant and fresh during a time when, in past years, we had very few Central offerings. City+ to Full City roast.
