|Review Date:||March 2013|
Blind Assessment: Round, rich, crisply sweet. Minty dark chocolate, night-blooming flowers, fresh-cut cedar, almond in aroma and cup. Gentle acidity; lightly syrupy, lively mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a rich though rather drying finish.
Notes: Processed at Buenavista mill, an organic-certified central processing station in Caranavi Province, west-central Bolivia. CaféTaster is an aficionado nano-roaster of the style increasingly characteristic of East Asia countries like Taiwan and Korea, roasting very high-end coffees in very small volumes for a tiny clientele of passionate coffee enthusiasts, in the process selling coffee education as much as coffee itself.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a quietly balanced, crisp-finishing chocolate- and floral-toned cup.
