Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: March 2013
Origin: Loja Province, Ecuador Price: $13.50/12 ounces
Sweet-toned, svelte, refreshing. Honey, lemon, lilac, a hint of roasted cocoa nib in aroma and, more intensely, in the cup. Tartly sweet, lively acidity; velvety, buoyant mouthfeel. Fades just a bit in the long finish, but the short is resonant and flavor-saturated.

Origin: Puno Province, southeastern Peru. Price: $17.75/12 ounces
Sweet, pungent, complex. Night-blooming flowers, a sweetness half way between honey and molasses, fresh-cut cedar, grapefruity citrus in aroma and cup. Lively, bright, though balanced acidity; delicate, buoyant mouthfeel. Rich, grapefruity tartness carries into a long, resonant finish.

Intense; richly and crisply bittersweet. Almond, dark chocolate, honey, a hint of flowers and a distinctive tart berry note suggesting, perhaps, acai. Crisp, gently juicy acidity; light, silky mouthfeel. The chocolate note in particular resonates in a long, deep finish.
