  • Caffe Ladro

    Taoyuan City, Taiwan
  • Espresso Gold Label

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: June 2012
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NT $520/16 ounces
 

Blind Assessment: Buttery caramel, gently pungent cedar, baker’s chocolate and a slight, pineapple-like tartness in aroma and small cup. Full, syrupy mouthfeel; the chocolate note in particular sweetens and lingers in a long, deep finish. Delicate in two parts milk; caramelly chocolate and a continued hint of pineapple-like fruit.

Notes: Caffè Ladro, established in 2001, is a well-established Taiwanese specialty roaster and coffee equipment vendor. Call +886-3-370-8080 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy big-bodied, quietly nuanced straight shots and delicate, balanced short milk drinks.

Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
