In the cup, this coffee is smooth, and its winey fruitiness dances across your palate. It’s highly drinkable, and the classic combination of candied orange notes alongside those of milk chocolate makes me relax at first, before the buzz kicks in.
When first tasting this cup, I was gladly met with that big and bold coffee I had come to expect from my first experience with Las Lajas, when my colleagues returned from Costa Rica a few years ago. I was excited to find the same complexities in the cup. A bright winey acidity that evens out with a chocolate orange finish. Massive body! Super sweet yet creamy and smooth.
This coffee is as comforting as sunshine lazily beaming through the curtains on a Sunday morning. I really love how the darker sticky caramel and toffee notes are complemented by sweet, bright apricot and sparkling mandarin acidity. It has a decadent, creamy hazelnut profile, and a silky smooth texture. Sounds like the kind of brekky I want to be invited to.
