Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Sweet-toned and deep. Raisin-toned chocolate and a hint of flowers in the aroma. Syrupy mouthfeel in the small cup; the chocolate turns crisp and cedar-toned, and the fruit plumps out to apricot and melon. In two parts milk rich, bittersweet chocolate and continued apricot-like fruit.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy resonantly deep, slightly carnal fruit in straight espresso. Roundly authoritative in short milk.
