Roast: Medium Review Date: July 2008

Blind Assessment: Roundly balanced, quietly rich coffee. Soft aroma with nut and chocolate notes. In the cup gently rich acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel, cherry-chocolate notes that carry into a simple but full finish.

This small lot is from the farm of Duviel Coca.
