Blind Assessment:

Lightly rich, delicately complex. Prominent pear-like fruit notes, roasted cacao nib, hazelnut and a hint of butterscotch in aroma and cup. Rich, balanced acidity; lightly syrupy, lively mouthfeel. Hazelnut and the butterscotch hint carry into a sweet-toned, gently drying finish.

Notes:

Doi Chaang is a single-estate coffee produced by a northern Thailand hill tribe in the Golden Triangle mountains of Thailand. Moriah Coffee is a small independent roaster based in Taiwan that focuses on its “commitment to a higher power” and roasting coffee that is intended to go easy on the GI tract.
