Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. In the small cup complex aroma and flavor: dark chocolate, honey, night-florals, grape-like fruit, pungent cedar. Impressively syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a sweet though drying finish. Balanced and rather brisk in two parts milk: chocolate, cedar, flowers.

Notes:

Processed by the traditional Brazilian natural or dry method, meaning the coffee was dried with both skin and fruit still adhering to the beans. Produced entirely from trees of the heirloom Yellow Bourbon variety of Arabica. Paradise Roasters prides itself on roasting and shipping coffee only after orders are placed. Its metaphoric mission is to bring some paradisiacal warmth from the coffee-growing south to the cool environs of Minnesota and beyond.

Who Should Drink It: Impressive complexity and depth of sensation in a single-origin espresso.
