Evaluated as espresso. High-toned, fruit-forward. Watermelon candy, salted caramel, vanilla, milk chocolate, cinnamon in aroma and small cup. Full, creamy mouthfeel; delicate, sweet-toned finish centered around notes of watermelon candy and cinnamon. Dessert-like in the milk shot, all fruit and candy with a hint of cinnamon.

Evaluated as espresso. Bittersweet, gently roast-toned, chocolaty. Chocolate fudge, roasted hazelnut, green apple, molasses, singed cedar in aroma and small cup. Silky-smooth mouthfeel; crisp, richly drying finish. Reads like a classic Italian espresso in three parts milk, bitter and sweet in equal parts, balanced and harmonious with a hint of roast throughout.

Evaluated as espresso. Bright, floral, sweetly herbaceous. Tangerine zest, lemon verbena, dark chocolate, narcissus-like flowers, sandalwood in aroma and small cup. Crisp, satiny mouthfeel; resonant finish consolidates to narcissus and sandalwood. In cappuccino-scaled milk, this coffee is driven by deep florals and rich aromatic wood notes, with a base of dark chocolate.

Evaluated as espresso. Crisp, sweetly spice-toned. Pomegranate, cedar, dark chocolate, magnolia, a hint of cumin in aroma and small cup. Crisp, satiny mouthfeel; tart-leaning, richly drying finish. Tart flavors stand up to three parts milk, in which dark chocolate and magnolia are also amplified.
