Sweetly rich, deeply pungent. Honey, tea rose, fir, black currant, thyme in aroma and cup. Quiet, crisp acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. All flavor notes carry into a nuanced, resonant, gently drying finish.
Produced on the Canaan Estate entirely from trees of the Yellow Catuai variety of Arabica. A “natural” or dry-processed coffee, which means the beans or seeds were dried encased in the entire fruit. Naturals form the backbone of the Brazil coffee industry, but this lot reflects a particularly refined approach to the method. This coffee tied for the third-highest-rated in a test of natural-processed Brazil coffees conducted for Coffee Review's May 2016 tasting report. Victrola is a small-batch, hands-on roaster with a passionate commitment to quality and distinctiveness. Visit www.victrolacoffee.com or call 206-624-1725 for more information.
A layered Brazil cup with a Kenya-like pungency and gentle resonance.
