Mugged: Costa Rica [Rev Coffee]

Mugged: Costa Rica Tarrazu Dota
Rating: 4+ [see key]

Georgia is another state that I have designs to see in the coming decade. At this point, I've only spent time in Atlanta but there's a lot more I'm fixing to do. Of course, one of those things of course is to visit some coffee venues; one of the said venues would be Rev Coffee Roasters in Smyrna. 

But in the interim, they sent me out a pound of coffee of their Costa Rica Tarrazu Dota to try. Per the regiment, I happily had it via drip, siphon and french press.

The drip produced notes of white zinfandel, honey, cornbread, basil, a bit of fig and some minor hay in a medium body. A sweet cup with a bit of sharpness.

The french press held flavors of honey, white zinfandel, bran, wheat cracker and some spinach. A bright cup with some minor sharp qualities.

The siphon demonstrated white zinfandel, honey, wheat, spinach, corn, bran and a little apple amidst a medium body. This was the smoothest of the three infusions. 

While I found this coffee a little sharp in some infusions and teensy bit underwhelming, it did indeed prove delicious and a nice coffee for a mellow afternoon. If you're in the market for a good Costa Rican, give Rev Coffee a swirl.

note: coffee was provided free of charge and the above review is objective feedback.

I wonder why coffee is so addicted. and this Mugged Costa Rica coffee is made pure. How does the process going on?

Georgia is a great state. I've lived there most of my life. I'm not too fond of atlanta though. It is very crowded. Athens is a great place to visit too, and it has the University of Georgia.

Notes of spinach sounds intriguing...!
