Blind Assessment: In the demitasse this blend is complexly crisp and pungent; richly dry chocolate notes are supported by an understated sweetness. Perhaps the heavy, smoothly balanced body accounts for the splendid impact this coffee makes in milk. The dairy relaxes the crisp chocolate notes and the coffee richly suffuses the milk rather than penetrating it.
Notes: A quintessential cappuccino blend. Complexly crisp and pungent; richly dry chocolate notes with understated sweetness. Splendid in milk. Caffé Vita operates two popular cafés in Seattle and supplies coffee to a wide range of restaurants and espresso bars. Visit www.caffevita.com or call 888-223-8482 for more information.
Who Should Drink It : A quintessential cappuccino blend. The complexity implicit in the small cup softens yet magnifies in milk, maintaining nuance and detail.
