Puerto Rican Yauco is a very limited production crop from the small mountainous growing regions on the island. It is softly bittersweet with a buttery-creamy body and soft low-acid flavor profile. This coffee is similar to Jamaican Blue Mountain and other "Island" coffees but with a bit more body and a lower price.

Round #01
Maybe a hint of citrus when I smelled the pod.
As usual I start at 8 oz. Not sure what to expect here.
Not an instant success. It was actually bitter, and sweet. But not in a way I liked.
Low to no-existent acidity.
Flavors in the area of earthy and woody.
Much of the bitterness gone half way through the cup. Maybe it's to weak?
I'll give it another go later. This was not happiness.

Round #02
Bunn MCP: 6oz, tea setting
I did not enjoy this much last round, but I'm ready to give it a second chance.
The pod smells citrus, spice and sweet.
Aromas in the way of earth or wood while brewing.
No bitterness this time.
First impression is sweet, and very round finish.
Something like wood in the aftertaste.
Much better experience than my first encounter.
Soft, citrus acidity.
Very enjoyable last part of the cup.
6oz was definitely the way to go here.
