Blind Assessment:

Roasted nut and a rich, pruny dark chocolate dominates in aroma and cup. Soft but resonant acidity, silky mouthfeel. Flavor fades a bit in the finish, but generally the cup sweetens and deepens as it cools, a good sign.

Notes:

Grown in northern Thailand’s Golden Triangle using sustainable farming practices. Eden Way is a family-owned business that sources its coffee directly from Thai village coffee growers and allocates 50% of its profits toward social causes involving reducing human trafficking and sponsoring orphaned children.

Who Should Drink It: A smooth, nut-and-chocolate-toned option for those who avoid brighter, more acidy coffees.
