These beans are really fresh! I roast for about a minute after the first crack and always pleased with the outcome. Thank you CBC!

This is one of my favorites and always a good standby. Each batch tastes a bit different to me, or perhaps it’s my technique! It’s a really delicious addition to a regulars rotation.

Roasted between 1st and 2nd crack. The cupping notes closely matched the description, "tropical fruit and bittersweet chocolate and has a smooth pronounced body". Roasted a 2nd batch passed 2nd crack. Made a smooth, chocolatey and nutty espresso,

A great bean with balance in all areas of taste. Not too fruity with good body, smooth and very enjoyable. Just ordered 3 more pounds.

I've really been enjoying these beautiful beans. They're great in an espresso blend, which I use them for. I roast at a full city+ and I feel has it's full flavor potential at this roast. Balanced, clean, subtle citrus notes that brings out a great acidity and a sweet tropical fruit, berry-like aroma.

Like these beans. Bought a 3 pound supply, and I still have some left to roast. My most recent roast was about 45 seconds to a minute after the end of first crack. Just made some espresso with these beans, And it tasted fantastic! The acidity level was fairly low even for it being roasted for not very long, but you still get the fruit notes that are in the description.I get a initial flavor of a strong sweet cherry at the beginning.

I really love this one. It's well balanced and very flavorful. Just what I want in the early morning. I roasted between medium and full city and it smells so good as the hot water hits my French press.

Costa Rican Tarrazu beans are my go to bean for my normal daily coffee fix. I roast these beans to a medium roast and get a very smooth, silky cup of coffee. Occasionally I will do a light roast to get even more aroma from the bean.

I bought the El Conquistador to challenge our daily coffee (La Magnolia). El Con does not disappoint! It is everything I have come to expect and love about Costa Rican coffee at a remarkable price. We will be adding this one to our "regular" list!
