Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Richly sweet, caramelly. Orange zest, dark caramel, fir, raisin, freesia in aroma and small cup. Full, satiny mouthfeel; wood-framed, caramel- and fruit-toned finish. In three parts milk, raisin and caramel notes are foregrounded, with spice-toned, freesia-like flowers underneath.

Notes:

This is not an artificially flavored coffee. The blend name, Choice Caramel Dried Prune, refers to natural aroma and flavor notes that the blend aims to evoke. Creation Food Co. is a food service company with a specialty coffee division. It operates one of the few large-scale coffee production facilities in Taiwan.

The Bottom Line: A crisp, sweet-toned espresso blend: caramelly and fruit-toned, particularly floral in milk.
