Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Rich notes of toast, nut and caramel in the aroma. Thick and syrupy in the small cup, with butter and walnut notes and soft suggestions of anise, clove and orange. Less nuanced in the finish, with the walnut-tone dominating and sustaining deeply into the long. In two parts milk the nut-tone sweetens and rounds balanced by hints of chocolate.

Notes:

This blend combines coffee processed by the traditional Brazilian natural or dry method in which the coffee is dried inside the fruit, with coffee from India of the Robusta species processed by the wet or washed method in which the fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying.
