Blind Assessment:

Richly sweet, nut-toned. Date, hazelnut, sassafras, elm, freesia-like flowers in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure with gentle, round acidity; satiny mouthfeel. Long, undulating finish centered around sweet hazelnut notes.

Notes:

Produced by Luca Allegro, Nelson Ribeiro, Fazendas Floresta and Aranquan, and Asociación Biodinámica d’Ibicoara, entirely from trees of the Catuai variety of Arabica and processed by the natural, or dried-in-the-fruit, method. Certified organic. SkyTop Coffee is a USDA certified-organic specialty coffee roaster based in Cazenovia, New York. For more information, visit www.skytopcoffee.com.

 

The Bottom Line: A solid Brazil natural: clean, deeply sweet, with a pleasing savory throughline.
