Die-Kaffee : Costa Rica Tarrazu

  • Origin: Single Estate Arabica - Washed
  • Price: ~ 26€/Kilo
  • Blend: 100% Arabica
  • Character: Apple, Lime, wholehearted and coherent

This is a part of the thorough Die-Kaffee Privatrösterei review. After reviewing most of the Quijote coffees the next reviews will focus on the beans that Olga Sabristova roasts.

While I try not to be biased in any way, I feel obliged to mention that my first order got mixed up. Olga reached out and resend me the bags I originally ordered, but allowed me to keep the other bags as well (Great customer service and a great starter).

Preparation

Ground with Rancillio Rocky S, prepared with Rancillio Silvia. Easy to get this coffee okay, hard to get it perfect. The first shot I pulled was godlike, took me another ten shots to recreate it.

Taste

Apple, lime, mellow, soft and harmonious. When done wrong it quickly gets a little acidic, but it's still okay. Not easy to screw up, but the fruit compounds create a smooth and complex finish when done right.

Would buy again ?

I'm not that certain, but I love it when done right - so it's a clear maybe.
