Sainsburys Taste the Difference Costa Rica Tarrazu Coffee
This came out lovely with a nice head on it in the mug. The strength was good and bitter - but it just lacked that smoothness that you need to help a strong coffee slip down. It was slightly fighting with my throat on the way down - resisting being drunk. There's a slight citrusy twang to it, not in Fairy Liquid kind of way; much more subtle. This could be due to the slice of lemon cake I ate just beforehand though. The packaging of these Sainsbury's Taste The Difference coffees is all wrong though - and I think that sets your mind ready to eat a packet of raisons and not drink coffee. I'm sure that's caused it to lose a point... Judges Rating - 7/10
"Aromatic and well rounded. Fresh and zingy, this classic Costa Rica tarrazu Arabica has delicate floral aromas, peppery undertones and a light chocolaty aftertaste. It's from the cool, mountainous Tarrazu region, regarded by connoisseurs as one of the best coffee growing areas in the world."
