Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet, deep-toned. Banana, cream, hazelnut, freesia, golden raisin in aroma and cup. Bittersweet structure with brisk acidity; crisp, syrupy mouthfeel. Complex, resonant, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Produced at Fazenda Rio Verde, entirely of the Red Acaia variety of Arabica, and processed by an experimental method that involves anaerobic or oxygen-free fermentation of the whole fruit for 90 hours, followed by drying on raised beds. Euphora Coffee is a Taipei-based specialty coffee roaster with an active online community through which all sales are made. Visit www.euphoracoffeestudio.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A friendly, crisply sweet, anaerobic natural Brazil cup with a particularly expansive, fruit-toned aroma.
