|Roaster Location:||Taipei, Taiwan|
|Coffee Origin:||Minas Gerais State, Brazil|
|Est. Price:||NT $340/8 ounces|
|Review Date:||May 2022|
Blind Assessment: Sweetly and deeply bright. Dried cherry, dark chocolate, magnolia, cedar, marjoram in aroma and cup. Sweetly savory structure with delicate, deep-toned acidity; silky-smooth mouthfeel. Simple, clean finish, chocolaty and sweet.
Notes: Comprised entirely of the Red Catuaí variety of Arabica and processed by the anaerobic natural method (fermentation of the whole fruit occurs in a hermetically sealed, oxygen-free vessel before the fruit is dried). Spix’s Cafe is a Taipei-based coffee roaster specializing exclusively in coffees from Brazil. Visit https://www.facebook.com/SpixsCafeEspecialTaiwan/ for more information.
The Bottom Line: A quietly confident anaerobic natural Brazil cup, chocolaty, deep, floral, fruit-toned.
