Blind Assessment: A slight musty fruit ferment serendipitously complicates this richly low-key coffee, reading as cocoa and cedar-toned ripe orange in both aroma and cup. A very slight astringency smoothes out in the long, sweet finish.
Notes: Certified Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from the small-holding farmers of the Poco Fundo Cooperative at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Barefoot Coffee Roasters is an award-winning and widely recognized small-batch roasting company that describes itself as "a happy little cafe and roastery in the heart of Silicon Valley."

Who Should Drink It : Quietly spicy social idealists.
