Blind Assessment:

Delicately sweet and bright; subtly intricate. Sugared lemon zest, sandalwood, mango, roasted cacao nib, dried jasmine in aroma and cup. Sweet, softly tart acidity; smooth, silky mouthfeel. Pungent mango and sandalwood in particular sustain in a surprisingly rich finish.


A blend composed of a dried-in-the-fruit or “natural”-processed coffee from an undisclosed Central America origin and a wet-processed or “washed” coffee from the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia.
