Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Well-structured, complete, balanced. Dark chocolate, richly aromatic cedar, apricot, tangerine, a hint of honeysuckle in aroma and small cup. Very smooth, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate carries into a drying but richly sweet finish. Flavor predictably softens but carries with delicate complexity into three parts milk.

Who Should Drink It: No grand gestures here, but a remarkably consistent and balanced espresso: delicately chocolaty, a hint of fruit and flowers, full and satiny in mouthfeel, all carrying persuasively into cappuccino-scaled milk.
