Blind Assessment:

Richly sweet, nut-toned. Baker’s chocolate, hazelnut butter, pear, agave syrup, fresh-cut fir in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with brisk acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Chocolate- and nut-toned in the long, resonant finish.

Notes:

Produced by Diogo Dias Texeira de Macedo entirely from trees of the Yellow Bourbon variety of Arabica. Processed by the “natural” method, 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. Topéca Coffee is an artisan roaster with three café locations and a roastery in Tulsa, Oklahoma.Visit www.topecacoffee.com or call 918-398-8022 for more information.

The Bottom Line: A friendly, richly nut-toned Brazil cup, a bit reminiscent of nutella, with pleasing notes of fresh-cut fir and pear throughout.
