Evaluated as espresso. High-toned aroma combining flowers and very ripe orange with a distant hint of fresh-cut grass. In the small cup smooth, lightly syrupy mouthfeel and a complex range of flavors that maintain the floral and ripe citrus theme with complications of black cherry and sweet nut. The flavors carry into a sweet short finish and linger delicately in the long. The flavor complex carries intact into two parts milk cushioned by a rich, caramel-like sweetness.
The first offering in George Howell's Barista Espresso Series, Cerise was developed in cooperation with Nik Krankl of Taste Coffee House in Newton Massachusetts. This espresso blend marks a new departure for Terroir, which has historically offered only elite single-origin coffees. Terroir is the creation of George Howell, one of the world's leading coffee visionaries. It is a pioneer in the revival of medium roast styles designed to foreground the character of the green coffee. Visit www.terroircoffee.com or call 866-444-5282 for more information.
