Blind Assessment: Both Ken and co-taster Willem Boot criticized this coffee's tendency to sharpness and astringency. Ken nevertheless admired a "heavy apricot-toned fruit" that complicated the small cup and maintained a pleasing if lean presence in milk. Willem 76, Ken 84.

Who Should Drink It: Those who, like Ken, value dry, low-toned fruit character and tolerate an acidy astringency in single shots and milk drinks.
