Deeply aromatic and intensely sweet. Dried blueberry, pipe tobacco, lavender, sweet cocoa, a hint of whisky in aroma and cup. Juicy, quietly vibrant acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates around dried blueberry and lavender in the short finish; the whisky hint returns in the long.

Subtly dynamic, deeply and sweetly pungent. Roasted cacao nib, black currant, almond butter, lavender in aroma and cup. Crisp, juicy, balanced acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Roasted cacao nib leads a resonant short finish; in the long, a sweet coconut surfaces, giving the coffee a whiff of the tropics.
