Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Rich, round, balanced; quietly chocolate- and fruit-toned. Cherry, blood orange, dark chocolate, fresh-cut cedar, lily-like flowers in aroma and small cup. Silky, lively mouthfeel; distinct chocolate carries into a rich though drying finish. A crisply dry, minty chocolate dominates in three parts milk.

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: Those who enjoy a richly chocolate- and fruit-toned espresso with a crisply drying edge.
