Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: January 2012
Origin: Oaxaca State, Mexico Price: $10.75/16 ounces

Blind Assessment: Roast-dominated profile. Charred wood rounds toward dark chocolate in aroma and cup. Hints of cardamom and flowers. Roast-muted acidity; full though rather rough mouthfeel. Chocolate persists pleasantly in a bittersweet, slightly drying finish.
