Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Balanced, deeply sweet, chocolaty. Dark chocolate, slightly scorched cedar, apricot, orange zest, lily in aroma and small cup. Crisp, syrupy mouthfeel; sweet, gently drying finish. In three parts milk, quite chocolaty and balanced with attractive cedar undertones.
Notes: A blend of coffees from Ethiopia, Brazil, Colombia and Guatemala, roasted for espresso brewing. Belray Coffee is a rapidly growing, quality-oriented coffee chain based in Shanghai, China.
The Bottom Line: A chocolate-toned espresso blend supported by notes of gently smoky aromatic wood and richly sweet, lily-like florals.
