Blind Assessment: Richly spice-toned, gently floral. Star anise, baking chocolate, lavender, vanilla, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart with pert acidity; very smooth, silky mouthfeel. The quietly flavor-laden finish centers around chocolate, lavender and star anise.
Notes: Produced at Café Granja La Esperanza from trees of the Colombia and Castillo varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed before drying). Founded in 2015, the Greater Goods mission is to enrich the lives of coffee-drinkers through passion, creativity, innovation and commitment to the consistency of the specialty coffee the company roasts, and through the local causes supported with its proceeds.

The Bottom Line : A vibrantly spice-driven cup with a throughline of bright floral and deep chocolate suggestions.
