Smit & Dorlas
|Roaster Location:||Mijdrecht, The Netherlands|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed.|

Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. In the aroma rather bright, high-toned, fruity: cherry, cherry-toned milk chocolate. In the small cup medium-bodied with a lightly syrupy mouthfeel and a continued tart sweetness that reads as a citrus-toned cherry. Clean, rich, simple finish. In milk softens to a delicate milk chocolate with a continued slightly tart edge.
Notes: Smit & Dorlas is a venerable, distinguished Dutch coffee company whose roots reach back to the early 19th century. Visit
Who Should Drink It: This gently acidy espresso with its tart fruitiness is a bit sharp as a straight shot but blooms with lovely delicacy in short milk drinks like cappuccino.
