This coffee is everything you'd expect from a rich Central American bean, but probably a bit sweeter and with interesting apricot flavors that linger after the sip.
The beans were "honey-processed," which means that they were allowed to dry with some of the coffee fruit remaining on the bean. It's a process pioneered in Costa Rica, but other coffee-producing countries have begun mimicking it.
What I love about this coffee is that it walks the line between "traditional" coffee flavors and something new and unique. If you're more of a traditionalist, and "fruity" flavors are something you're wary of - this is a great spot to start.
The apricot flavor isn't as bright or forward as you might find with (for example) an Ethiopian dry-process bean. They blend pleasantly into the background.
If you're brewing filter coffee, this roast is an especially great fit!
