Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Sweet-toned aroma: chocolate, nut, cherry. In the small cup buttery mouthfeel with excellent depth and balance; the chocolate turns caramelly and the fruit toward a zesty orange, both supported by a pungent cedar. In the finish good flavor persistence but slightly bitterish. Maintains flavor with authority in two parts milk: rich, pungent, with hints of continued orange, cedar and chocolate.

Who Should Drink It: A versatile straight-shot espresso, with buttery body and bittersweet complexity, but perhaps at its best in short milk, where it maintains its individuality with richness and clarity.
