Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Brightly juicy, sweetly floral. Honey, tangerine, red-currant jelly, lilac, backgrounded chocolate fudge in aroma and small cup. Full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish, sweet and richly drying, consolidates around citrus and chocolate. Smoothly bright and balanced in three parts milk – delicate chocolate, creamy citrus, a continuing hint of flowers.

Notes:

This distinguished blend is comprised of a wet-processed Kenya Lenana AB and a dried-in-the-fruit or natural-processed Brazil Cerrado Vereda. Propeller is a relatively new Toronto-based micro-roaster with a dedication to careful selection and exceptional craft roasting of high-end coffees, the outgrowth of five years of successful business as the three-location Crema Coffee café chain.

Who Should Drink It: Balanced and vivacious espresso: citrusy brightness rounded by chocolaty depth and plump mouthfeel.
