Blind Assessment: Deeply rich, sweetly spice-toned. Pineapple, roasted cocoa nib, lavender, maple syrup, hazelnut butter in aroma and cup. Juicy, citrus-toned acidity; smooth, creamy mouthfeel. The resonant finish consolidates to lavender and cocoa notes in the short, with suggestions of hazelnut returning in the long.
Notes: Produced by Oscar and Francisca Chacon of Las Lajas Micromill and processed by the honey method, which means that the outer skin is removed as it is in the wet or “washed” process, but at least some of the sticky fruit residue is allowed to dry on the bean and later removed by machine along with the parchment skin.

The Bottom Line: A balanced, sweet-toned Costa Rica cup with a spicy floral notes thorughout.
