  • Ecuador Lucas Vera

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: May 2013
Origin: Vilcabamba, Loja Province, southern Ecuador. Price: $22.00/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Quietly rich, balanced, crisp. Sweet cream, orange blossom, fresh-cut fir, a hint of dark chocolate in aroma and cup. Clean, straightforward acidity; very lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor notes consolidate in a long, gently resonant finish.
