Blind Assessment:

Pungent, deep, sweetly nut-toned. Brown sugar, cashew, orange, cherry, a hint of lily-like flowers in aroma and cup. Quiet, rich acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates around the cherry-like fruit note in a sweet, resonant finish.

Notes:

This exceptional coffee was selected as the #27 coffee in the Coffee Review Top 30 Coffees of 2014.
