Review Date: May 2015

Price: NTD $600/227 grams

Evaluated as espresso. Exhilaratingly bright without sharpness; juicy. Mango, pineapple, roasted cacao nib, honeysuckle-like flowers in aroma and small cup. Lively, effervescent mouthfeel. The pineapple fruit softens and the cacao nib deepens toward chocolate in a long, very sweet finish. In three parts milk the tropical fruit notes turn almost buttery: think ripe papaya.

Evaluated as espresso. Wide-ranging complexity. Strawberry, cedar, walnut, dark chocolate, narcissus-like flowers in aroma and small cup. Slight savory suggestion. Big, syrupy mouthfeel; sweet floral notes carry into a sweetly and richly pungent finish. Narcissus, chocolate and cedar all move persuasively into three parts milk.

Sweet, cidery, unusual. Apple cider, rose, almond, sweet-orange Turkish delight, a hint of angostura bitters in aroma and cup. Crisply balanced, rounded acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Finish consolidates around a lightly sweet and spice-toned resonance.

Price: NT $520/225 grams

Evaluated as espresso. Lush tropical fruit and tart berry dominates with a chocolaty depth that for co-taster Ethan Hill (94) evoked “chocolate-covered raisin and tropical fruit.” Ken (94) for his part cited cleanly sweet alcohol suggestions (“fruity cabernet”), and both remarked on a sweetly tart pineapple top note that carried throughout the profile. For both tasters the mouthfeel was “plush [and] velvety,” the finish a bit drying but still saturated with the fruit and chocolate suggestions. In three parts milk the fruit and chocolate rounded but persisted with satisfying continuity.

Evaluated as espresso. Both co-taster Ethan Hill (93) and Ken (92) remarked on the subtle, intricate layering of aroma and flavor, which for Ethan involved “lilac, lavender, blackberry … almond.” Both found mouthfeel relatively light but “satiny” (Ethan), the general structure delicate and balanced, the finish softly resonant and berry-toned. Both Ethan and Ken felt the general poise and quiet intricacy of this coffee carried persuasively into three parts milk.

Evaluated as espresso. Both co-taster Ethan Hill (92) and Ken (92) were impressed with deep, pungent aromatic wood notes (sandalwood, cedar) and rich fig and date suggestions. Ken found further complication: musky flowers and chocolate. Ethan felt that the low-toned richness turned rather barley-like in the finish, though for Ken it remained chocolaty. Both were impressed by the blend in three parts milk; for Ken it displayed a “flower-nuanced cocoa and cedar.”

(As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a Keurig-compatible capsule containing a 7-gram dose of particularly finely ground coffee to produce a 6-ounce serving). Crisply delicate yet lush. Roasted cacao nib, night-blooming flowers, moist perique tobacco, dried cherry in aroma and cup. Round, low-toned acidity; light but distinctly syrupy mouthfeel. The cherry note in particular carries into a sweet though quietly drying finish.

Evaluated as espresso. Sweetly pungent, chocolate- and nut-toned. Chocolate, hazelnut, fresh-cut fir, orange, raisin in aroma and small cup. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel; orange and chocolate in particular carry into a richly drying finish. Excellent in three-parts milk, where the chocolate amplifies and the hazelnut takes on a vanilla-like sweetness.
