Blind Assessment:

Sweetly and richly pungent. Violet, peach, almond butter, baker’s chocolate, fresh-cut cedar in aroma and cup. Round, quietly tart acidity; Smooth, satiny mouthfeel. The rich, flavor-saturated short finish consolidates to violet and baker’s chocolate in the long.

Notes:

Produce from trees of the Caturra, Typica, Bourbon and Pacamara varieties of Arabica at Cañada Fria Farm in the Veracruz growing region. Vigilante Coffee Company was founded in Washington DC’s H Street NE neighborhood in 2012.

The Bottom Line: An attractive Mexico coffee with fine floral top notes and chocolate and aromatic wood undertones.
