Richly chocolaty, deep-toned. Dark chocolate, hop flowers, black cherry, cinammon, fresh-cut cedar in aroma and cup. Bittersweet structure with gentle, round acidity; plush, creamy mouthfeel. Chocolaty finish with supporting notes of hop flowers and cinnamon.
Produced by smallholding members of Cafe Capitan, a Chiapas cooperative, entirely from trees of the Maragogype variety of Arabica, and processed by the washed method. Certified organic. Speckled Ax is a roaster based in Portland, Maine, specializing in high-quality certified organic and small-lot coffees. The company roasts in a vintage wood-fired Petroncini roaster with the goal of highlighting each coffee’s best attributes. Visit www.speckledax.com for more information.
A compelling umami-leaning Maragogype cup with savory floral and complex fruit and spice notes.
