Blind Assessment:

Crisp walnut and roasted cacao nib notes balance sweet flowers (freesia?) and nectarine in aroma and cup. Sweetly brisk acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a nicely smooth, sweet-toned finish.

Notes:

Produced by farmers Alexander and Sara Delgado and processed by the honey method, which means that the outer skin is removed as it is in the wet or “washed” process, but at least some of the sticky fruit residue is allowed to dry on the bean and later removed by machine along with the parchment skin. Chocolate Fish is a distinguished New-Zealand inspired micro-roaster based in Sacramento California, focused on the best in both quality and integrity.

Who Should Drink It: Those who value a combination of floral sweetness and crisp, nutty chocolate in a balanced, quietly rich cup.
