Costa Rican SHB EP Tarrazu La Pastora

(1 customer review)

$6.25 $4.49

First new 2020/21 crop Costa coffee!
Great Intro Price – Normally $5.99/lb

The aroma is floral and sweet like honey. A nice medium bodied, smooth & creamy cup of coffee with little stronger floral aspect and medium to low acidity. It does get a good lemongrass tone at lighter roasts, a common sign of being into the new crop.  Light roasts are crisp with a slight nutty tone that turns much more chocolaty into the medium or dark roasts. The cup finishes with a pleasantly surprising spiciness. This is a savory cup of coffee with wonderful complexities.

Description

First new 2020/21 crop Costa coffee! 

Tarrazu coffees are grown in altitudes over 3,900 feet, allowing them to be designated SHB-single hard bean, the highest classification in the Costa Rican system. Grown in rich volcanic soil and high altitude make this one the finest coffees in the world.

Tarrazu coffees are famed for snappy, strikingly clean flavor. Known as a “classically complete” coffee, they’re crisp and medium-bodied, with tangy citrus flavor and a fine, satisfying aroma. Tarrazu cups wonderfully at all but the lightest and darkest roasts.

Tasting Notes:
The aroma is floral and sweet like honey. A nice medium bodied, smooth & creamy cup of coffee with little stronger floral aspect and medium to low acidity. It does get a good lemongrass tone at lighter roasts, a common sign of being into the new crop.  Light roasts are crisp with a slight nutty tone that turns much more chocolaty into the medium or dark roasts. The cup finishes with a pleasantly surprising spiciness. This is a savory cup of coffee with wonderful complexities.

Roasting Notes:
Easy to roast and good from light to dark. Will roast a little two toned, make sure everything is through first crack before cooling it out. Medium roasts are where thought it to shine, well balanced and smooth; might be a little mild for some. Darker roasts are slightly edgy but great pronounced dark chocolate tones balancing with some smoky and toasty notes, a good combo.

    I’m pretty new into this roasting hobby, but I take my hobbies seriously, always wanting to excel.
    This was my 1st Costa, and glad I chose it. I’m using an SR 500 for now, and all of my roasts have gone very well.
    I enjoy dark roasts with body, chocolaty and nutty flavors. I think my sweet spot from this bean is 1 minute into 2nd crack @ 402 F. I like to delay 1st and 2nd cracks by keeping temperatures lower to allow for sugars to build within the bean. This gives an excellent cup after a 48 hr. set up. I use filtered water, and a French press timed at 4 Min 30 sec. 12 Grams per 10 oz. mug. I enjoy it both morning and as an evening cup as well. Love the sale price too!!
