Roast: Light Review Date: November 2008

Blind Assessment: Delicately lush, very sweet-toned aroma: flowering grass, honey, molasses. In the cup sweet but intense acidity, light body, silky mouthfeel, flowers, pipe-tobacco, lemon notes. Sweet, rich, nut-toned finish.

Notes: The fields of Finca Las Lainez are planted entirely in the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica.
