Roaster Review: I picked a bag of the Costa Rica Tarrazu La Minita Estate for a change of pace and to have a Latin American coffee on hand. My only concern now is if I have enough to share with my family and friends. The roast is Coffee By Design’s, Peak Roast and it is perfect for this bean, the roast gives all the flavor profiles you expect for a Costa Rican, but the robust taste that is brought forward is truly astounding, I can’t get enough of it. The coffee is smooth and complex with the right amount of nuttiness, a slight hint of chocolate. With cream the flavor is further enhanced with a wonderful finish that complements any meal at any time of day.
