Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Complex, juicy, richly tart. Almond, dark chocolate, guava, tangerine zest, star jasmine in aroma and small cup. Light, very silky mouthfeel; chocolate, fruit and flowers all carry into a cleanly sweet, delicately drying finish. Flavor-saturated in three parts milk: almond, chocolate, guava, flowers all resonate in rich, custardy balance.

Notes:

A blend of wet- and natural-processed Ethiopia coffees. Greybox Coffee is a new specialty roaster and cafe based in Shanghai, China. Visit www.greyboxcoffee.com for more information.

The Bottom Line: Complete, balanced, yet striking and original espresso.
