Blind Assessment:

Vivid, sweet-toned aroma: flowers, pear, apple, shimmering over a deeper-toned chocolaty base. In the small cup smooth, full mouthfeel, but rather simple in flavor: gentle, pungent cedar with a hint of chocolate. Great presence and fine balance in milk: fresh leather, milk chocolate, a hint of flowers.

Notes:

Half of the coffee contained in this blend is Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning coffee that has been produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations.

Who Should Drink It: True aficionados of the classic cappuccino - please hold the chocolate and sugar.
