Costa Rican Tarrazu
- Product Review (submitted on August 9, 2013):
This is a very smooth, mild coffee.
I tried it an Aeropress(inverted method) with an Able Brewing disk filter with a ratio of 18g of fresh ground coffee set at 3 on the Aeropress, filled with ~200°F water, stirrred for 30 sec., let rest for 1min., then pressed into a small cappuccino cup and topped up with hot water...excellent, excellent cup.
Tried it in a Clever coffee dripper with a ratio of 24g coffee to 350ml water. Added 200°F water, let sit for 1 min., stirred, then let rest for 2.5 min., then dispensed coffee...not as much depth as the Aeropress, but smoth nonetheless. I'm guessing this is due to the paper filter soaking up some of the oils.
Also have tried it both black and with 1/2&1/2 and raw sugar in both of the aforementioned methods. This is so delicate and smooth that I must say I prefer it in the Aeropress with no sugar and just a splash of 1/2&1/2. Delicious.
Delivery was extremely prompt and I live in the suburbs outside Chicago!
