Blind Assessment:

Sweet, rich, slightly earthy. Brown sugar, orangy citrus, fresh-cut cedar, bakers’ chocolate, a hint of fresh, humus-like earth in aroma and cup. Round, gently lively acidity; very lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a rather short finish.

Notes:

This 100% Thai coffee is dry-processed or “natural,” 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. Bluekoff is a Thai company involved in all aspects of coffee, from milling and roasting to coffee wholesale and retail and related equipment and training services.

Who Should Drink It: Displays a hint of the earthy, cedary pungency of Sumatra coffees, pleasingly enveloped in sweetness.
