The Drink: Cafetin Roasting Company Costa Rica
Type: Whole Bean Medium Roast (Single Estate)
Overall Rating: 3.25 Out 5 Coffee Mugs
Being known as a coffee person certainly has its benefits. My friends pass along information to me on a shop or roasters they come across with what they feel is good coffee. The greatest perk is always being handed a bag of coffee they think I might like to try.
My parents, for example, are conditioned to keep a lookout for anything related to my interests. When they came across a coffee roaster at a farmer’s market in Chestertown, Maryland, there was no doubt that they were going to walk up, start a conversation with the owner of the stand and purchase some coffee for me to try.
