Blind Assessment: Rich aroma: dark chocolate, toast and a hint of fruit. The flavors blossom in the small cup with a broad cherry-like fruit balanced by notes of aromatic wood, a suggestion of mint, soft roastiness and more dark chocolate. Flavors simplify in the finish. Sweet and round in two parts milk: nut-toned chocolate dominates, complicated by continued suggestions of fruit, caramel and aromatic wood.
Notes: Located in Banciao City, southwest of Taipei, Carmen Cafe is a small-scale roaster and coffee shop that focuses on single-origin coffees and refined espresso blends. With a strong commitment to freshness, Carmen Cafe will custom-roast to order. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy subtle variations on chocolate in a versatile espresso.
