One of the more popular coffees here at Art Brulant has been the Costa Rican micro-lot La Horqueta. Sad to say this particular coffee is about to run out. That is why I am introducing this week’s feature now — before the Horqueta is totally gone.
To give you the opportunity to see how a coffee can produce different flavours I have roasted the Costa Rican Tarrazu of the La Pastora cooperative in two different profiles. The medium roast has a similar roast profile to that of the La Horqueta. Light, bright, with a bit of sharpness to it. Though this is not to say that it lacks depth. The dark roast is a fair bit darker, lacking the brightness of its lighter cousin. It does on the other hand have a fair bit of intensity to it with some heavier notes coming through.
