Blind Assessment:

Richly sweet, delicately fruit-toned. Strawberry, violet, cacao nib, cashew butter, fresh-cut cedar in aroma and cup. Balanced structure (sweet, tart, bitter) with vibrant acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Graceful, lingering finish that carries over all the flavor and aroma notes from the cup, particularly strawberry, violet and cedar.

Notes:

Produced by Jose Maria de Oliveira in the Cerrado growing region of Minas Gerais State in southeastern Brazil. This is a dry-processed or “natural” coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. Located in southwestern Colorado, Durango Coffee lays claim to a rich coffee history that dates to 1986. Its motto is “Tough Town, Great Coffee.” Visit www.durangocoffee.com or call 800-748-2275 for more information.

 

The Bottom Line: A beautiful berry-centric natural-processed coffee from Brazil, with especially high-toned acidity and deep cocoa notes throughout.
