Blind Assessment:

Delicate, richly sweet. Caramel, cherry, roasted cacao nib, narcissus, a hint of cumin in aroma and cup. Mild, rounded acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. The short but resonant finish consolidates to cocoa and spice tones.


Produced by Paulo Ribeiro Rocha Revel from trees of the Acaia, Catuai and Bourbon varieties of Arabica. 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. Revel Coffee is a micro-roaster located in Billings, Montana. Its motto: “Quality is paramount — a difference you can revel in.” Visit www.revelcoffee.com or call 406-534-9621 for more information.

The Bottom Line: An accessible, deeply sweet, caramel-toned Brazil cup. Those who avoid aggressive acidity but enjoy a lighter-roasted, very gently bright cup should particularly value this selection.
