Blind Assessment:

Sweet, deeply fruit-toned. Ripe blueberry, sherry-like wine, hazelnut, dark chocolate, a hint of cinnamon-sugar in aroma and cup. Bright, lively acidity; delicate, satiny mouthfeel. The richly drying finish consolidates to blueberry-toned dark chocolate and cinnamon.


Produced by Anny Pimentel entirely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica and processed by the natural method, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees.This coffee tied for the third-highest rating in a tasting of women-produced coffees for Coffee Review‘s June 2017 tasting report. Presta Coffee Roasters is a quality-oriented, largely wholesale coffee roaster based in Tucson, Arizona. Visit www.squareup.com/store/prestacoffee for more information.

The Bottom Line: Blueberry central! A fruit-toned natural cup that paradoxically conjures sherry-like wine enveloped in dark chocolate.
