Original and complex. A pungent sweetness suggesting herb honey or agave syrup dominates, complicated by hints of night flowers, cocoa nib, cedar. Quietly crisp acidity; smooth, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor persists in a sweet-toned but gently drying finish.
Pungent and perfumy. Orange zest, apricot, lush honeysuckle, fir, a hint of cocoa nib in aroma and cup. Roundly tart acidity; light, rather creamy-textured mouthfeel. Sweetly tart in the finish: hints of the orange and cocoa nib.
Sweetly and gently pungent. Prune, nut, chocolate, a hint of honey in aroma and cup. Round, quiet acidity; light but buttery-textured mouthfeel. Sweet-toned, simple finish.
Round, low-toned, pungent. An oak-like aromatic wood note dominates in aroma and cup, with backgrounded caramel and milk chocolate sweetness and a hint of lily-like flowers. Quiet acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Some flavor carries into a sweet though slightly drying finish.
Although described on the package as an espresso, this blend is evaluated here for non-espresso brewing. Roundly pungent, richly chocolaty. A complex chocolate sensation dominates in aroma and cup, with a savory hint of nut. Gently brisk acidity; light but smooth mouthfeel. Sweet, richly drying finish.
Round, sweet, gently pungent. Fresh-cut fir, chocolate, a hint of enlivening tart berry in aroma and cup. Round, rather muted acidity; light but syrupy mouthfeel. Sweet-toned, gently drying finish.
Complex and unorthodox. Sweet, orangy citrus and raw sugar in aroma and cup, with backgrounded hints of chocolate and baking spice. Quiet, round acidity; smooth, lively mouthfeel. Fades just a bit in a sweet-toned finish.
Delicately complex. Sweet cream and milk chocolate with balancing hints of grapefruity citrus and peppercorn. Round, rather muted acidity; lightly but distinctly syrupy mouthfeel. Sweet-toned, resonant, quietly flavor-saturated finish.
Gentle, delicate. Crisp chocolate and hazelnut notes dominate in aroma and cup; complicating hints of fir and citrus. Gentle, balanced acidity; light, silky mouthfeel. Sweet-toned, slightly drying finish.
Gently pungent, balanced. Aromatic oak, lemony citrus, hints of chocolate and flowers in aroma and cup. Round, quiet acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Hints of lemon and chocolate in a slightly drying finish.
