Blind Assessment: Sweetly rich, deep. Dusk-blooming flowers, buttery dark chocolate, fresh pipe tobacco, banana-like fruit in aroma and cup. Roundly tart acidity; lightly syrupy, lively mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but rings on in a sweetly balanced finish.
Notes: In addition to his retail roasting operation Aroma Roast Coffees, Simon Hsieh also operates Soaring Phoenix Trading, a business focused on purposed-built commercial espresso blends and high quality single-origin coffees.

Who Should Drink It: A deeply sweet version of the great Sumatra profile; the famous earth notes here come across as moist pipe tobacco supporting lavish floral and a soft, banana-like fruit.
