Costa Rica Tarrazu from Starbucks
I recently reviewed the Costa Rican Tarrazu from Trader Joe’s, find the review here. In that review I compare the flavors to this version of the Tarrazu from Starbucks. I hadn’t had this coffee in a while and recently picked up a bag at the grocery store. I know that I advocate grinding your own beans and have fallen in love with bold brews, but this coffee is an old favorite for me.
When I first got into drinking brewed coffee every morning, I participated in a little taste profile quiz on the Starbucks website. The Costa Rica Tarrazu was recommended for me. I had owned (and used very frequently) an espresso machine for years. That as my favorite way to enjoy coffee. Then I decided to try something new…this Tarrazu is a medium roast with citrusy notes (think grapefruit) and an all around bright coffee, this is a great coffee. I really could drink this everyday and have no problem with it. I think this is an excellent choice for those who are slowly making their way into the coffee world.
