Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Richly chocolaty, nut-toned. Chocolate fudge, pistachio, gardenia, scorched mesquite, molasses in aroma and small cup. Full, creamy mouthfeel; chocolaty, pleasingly smoky-sweet finish. In three parts milk, think Snicker’s bar with extra caffeine.
Notes: A blend of coffees from Guatemala, Brazil and Colombia, roasted for espresso. Coffee Please is an artisanal roastery and cafe in Taipei’s Beitou District, famous for its proximity to the Yangming Mountain hot springs. Visit www.facebook.com/CoffeepleaseTW for more information.
The Bottom Line: A deeply sweet, dessert-like espresso blend, gently smoke-toned, sweetly nutty and floral, boldly chocolaty.
