Costa Rica - Cafe Deredia

Fully Washed, Strictly Hard Bean

Swiss Chocolate, Caramel, Brown Sugar

This wonderful Costa Rican Central Valley coffee is incredibly balanced with regard to the overall body of the coffee to the brightness and acidity.
Coffees from the Central Valley region are known for their quality, clean profile, creamy body, and mild citrus tones.

Exceptional quality!

General Flavor Observations
Costa Rica - Cafe Deredia

The body is medium with round notes of Swiss Chocolate and caramel.
Mild notes of lemon are present in lighter roasts; dark chocolate in darker roasts.
The mouth feel is creamy, smooth, and rolling with a clean, sweet finish.
The aroma is enticing with floral notes and honey.

I was impressed with the depth of the coffee as well, deeper than you might expect from a Costa Rica coffee.
I believe the milder fruit tones, and greater body are due to a combination of quality control, growing altitude and being fully washed.

Regardless, this is an astounding coffee that should not be missed!

Roast Level Profile Notes
Costa Rica - Cafe Deredia

I personally prefer a Full City roast for the best balance between all attributes.
However, I can wholeheartedly recommend Full City (+) roast as well.

We are always happy to accommodate any roast level you prefer.
The notes below illustrate how changing the roast level will alter the profile:

City Roast (light roast)

This is the best choice for experiencing pure Origin Characteristics. At a City roast, you will experience brighter acidity, notable lemon tones, mild chocolate and hints of malt. The finish is clean and sweet.

Full City Roast (medium roast) - Preferred

This is my preferred roast level and will provide a very nice medium body with distinct notes of Swiss Chocolate, caramel, and a brown sugar sweetness. The mouth feel is round and creamy with a perfect overall balance. The brightness of the cup is milder than you would expect with subtle hints of lemon.

Full City (+) Roast

A silky-smooth mouth-feel with an increased sense of depth. The acidity is more tempered, and the chocolate tones become slightly edgier (like Baker's chocolate). The brown sugar sweetness and caramel remain, and the finish is clean, yet a bit more pointed.

Vienna Roast

This roast level will transform the coffee into fuller bodied coffee with clear notes of bittersweet dark chocolate. Almost no acidity or fruit notes will remain.
This would be an excellent choice for an after dinner coffee with dessert or following a rich meal.

French Roast

Not recommended.

5 Stars
Great Coffee
The Costa Rica Tarrazu is a great coffee.

I really enjoy your products. There is no comparison to other brands, especially when I drink the first gulp in the morning.

Thanks Joe!
