Blind Assessment:

Rich-toned, sweetly spicy. Brown sugar, gardenia, pink peppercorn, crisp pear, oak in aroma and cup. Crisp, roundly sweet in structure; velvety mouthfeel. The flavor-saturated finish consolidates to caramelized pear in the short and pink peppercorn in the long.

Notes:

Mystic Monk Coffee is a small-batch roaster associated with a Carmelite monastery located in the Rocky Mountains of northern Wyoming. The monks emphasize an artisan approach to roasting and a commitment to quality. Visit www.mysticmonkcoffee.com or call 877-751-6377 for more information.

The Bottom Line: A lively, engaging spice-toned blend: crisp and richly sweet.
