Blind Assessment: Rich, deep, caramelly. Dark caramel, hazelnut butter, lilac, fresh-cut oak, marjoram in aroma and cup. Very sweet with brisk acidity; plush, satiny mouthfeel. Caramel- and nut-toned finish with lilac resurfacing in the long.
Notes: A blend comprised of two coffees, both washed-process: a Papua New Guinea and a Guatemala. Founded in August 2016, Charlotte Coffee Company donates 10 percent of proceeds from all retail sales to local non-profits dedicated to ending homelessness and hunger.

The Bottom Line: A familiar, comforting blend with leading notes of dark caramel, rich nut tones, and pretty florals — a classic daily drinker.
