Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Richly sweet, roast-toned. Dark chocolate, scorched cedar, lily, almond, ripe apricot in aroma and small cup. Creamy, leanish body. The rather drying finish shows pleasing chocolate notes in the short, consolidating to scorched cedar and almond in the long

Notes:

A Strictly High Grown (SHG) equivalent grade single-origin Arabica coffee from Doi Chang, Thailand. Processed by the traditional wet or “washed” method, in which skin and fruit flesh are removed from the beans or seeds before they are dried. Alephant is committed to delivering the finest quality coffee with environmental and social responsibility. Visit www.alephantcoffee.com or www.doichangcoffee.com for more information.

The Bottom Line: A roast-dominated but rich, quietly complex single-origin espresso from Thailand for those who enjoy dark-roasted coffees that maintain sweetness and character.
