Coffee #3: Allegro Light Roast: Costa Rica Las Lomas

This is another organic Whole Foods coffee, light roast (learn more and shop online here). I chose it because, according to its label, it should have a honey, cocoa and orange mandarin flavour.

Tasting Notes

I find this really smooth for a light roast. Lights usually taste a little sharp and bitter to me, but this one was really easy and mild in taste. I didn’t get any of the tasting notes when the coffee was black, which makes it a great base for making your coffee taste however you prefer it. Not a bad thing, at all.

Adding milk and honey gave it a sweet, nutty texture. I’d even describe it as having a buttery mouth-feel. The citrusy note of the orange mandarin is present, but mild. I’d say it’s overwhelmed by the nutty taste.

I give this blend a 5/5 for its versatility and smoothness.
