One of our favorites from last year! We couldn’t wait to try the new crop. Smooth notes of sugar-sprinkled fruit tart evolve into a creamy vanilla (marshmallow?) as the cup cools. The kids get hot cocoa; we get Costa Rica. We win.
Costa Rican coffee holds a dear place in our hearts, our palates craving the chocolate and vanilla from the rich volcanic soils. This coffee won't disappoint you. In fact, add cream and melon to your chocolate and this is your new favorite morning coffee. From start to finish, the cup is sweet and juicy with a full butterscotch and chocolate body. We eagerly wait every year for this coffee since we first met the producer and owner in 2014.
"Really excellent, well roasted and complex. Nice to have a Costa Rican coffee that is not over roasted. "
"Overall awesome coffee. Nothing stands out as fantastic here but will be ordering again. It is simple and easy going - definitely taste the vanilla here. The melon was a nice touch to finish the sip off."
"I really enjoyed this Costa Rica coffee, just a downright tastes treat. Sweet, smooth with a great aftertaste."
"A surprising pour over, rich bodied, a new favorite."
"This one as so smooth and creamy that it made me happy right after the first sip. I hope it becomes available again. "
"Great coffee. The notes were very interesting and worked well together. A very enjoyable coffee. "
"Was a good blend. The marshmallow was a real treat when you taste the small notes of it. I am loving these coffee's from Conduit. "
"It has a fruity essence but no distinct flavor. The vanilla comes off smooth. This one’s like a toned down version of Kilenso Ethiopia. Still acidic, but a little sweetness that balances it out. Adding sugar did little to improve the taste. It’s not bad but I probably wouldn’t choose it again. "
"Excellent coffee! Definitely a sweet treat and one I could drink all day. A touch of cream makes it almost dessert like! Yummy!"
"One of the best Costa Rican beans I've tried. Brewed on Kalita it's very smooth and sweet. Perfectly balanced between the melon, red fruit, vanilla and marshmallow flavors. The chocolate rounds it all out. It's juicy, sweet and a very well rounded bean."
"So smooth- quite possibly the best coffee Inhave ever had."
"Very flavorful coffee. Brewed in french press 4-5 minutes. Tastes of fruit with a mild acidity. Good coffee overall."
"Loved this yummy Costa Rican coffee with delicious notes of chocolate and vanilla with sweet notes. "
"Smooth and slightly sweet, very happy with this roast showing up in my box! I feel it came out a bit richer from my blue bottle pour-over rather than my aeropress. Brew methods used : aeropress + Pour-Over."
"The flavors I get when I first brew this coffee is that of cloves, vanilla, and a little bit of sage. As the cup cools, the sweetness of marshmallow and chocolate come out in full effect. Fantastic coffee!"
"This is my favorite so far from the box I received this month. With a little cream it is delightfully smoresish. With a dash of melon! Yum!"
"I love that the vanilla flavor comes through and the marshmallow, although not strong, adds a hint of sweetness. It is a great light coffee to begin my day."
"I agree with past reviews; It was one of my favorites. This coffee had the right balance and the right flavor to keep me saying "Mmm!" Vanilla and melon all around, this coffee is great with or without sugar. Very complimentary with milk. "
"As soon as this started brewing, I could smell the sweet flavor of the vanilla. It was a dark, balanced combination of flavors that was perfect on its own or with a little milk. I don't particularly enjoy melon, but couldn't taste it at all in the coffee, making the experience even better."
