Evaluated as espresso. Particularly impressive aroma: sweet-toned and delicate: "flowers, orangy chocolate" (Ken, 89). Smooth, buttery mouthfeel. In flavor, lively but rather "tangy and sharp" (co-cupper Andy Newbom, 88); a little too much unripe lemon and licorice sensation perhaps. Chocolaty but simple in milk.
A seasonal espresso blend with components that change throughout the year. De La Paz Coffee is a small-batch coffee roasting company that focuses on high quality coffee and freshness. Visit
