Chopin M?lange Espresso

Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Crisply sweet though rather simple aroma with some complicating hints: fruity chocolate, fresh leather. In the small cup fullish body, smooth mouthfeel, roundly rich but rather neutral in nuance: cedar, semi-sweet chocolate, nut. Recovers in a sweet, clean, distinctly chocolate-toned finish and blooms opulently in milk: round, deep, chocolaty, long-finishing.
Notes: Smit & Dorlas is a venerable, distinguished Dutch coffee company whose roots reach back to the early 19th century. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Fine choice for cappuccino purists.
