Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Roast-prominent, chocolaty, richly sweet. Scorched fir, ripe banana, bakers chocolate, wilted narcissus, allspice in aroma and small cup. Light and fluffy mouthfeel; finish consolidates to chocolate and banana with smoky undertones. In three parts milk the roast integrates nicely with deep chocolate, sweet fruit and a savory pungency.
Notes: A blend of wash-processed coffees from Central America. HWC Roasters is a specialty coffee roaster based in Taichung, Taiwan. For more information, visit www.hwcroasters.com.
The Bottom Line: An interpretation of classic espresso, with rich, smoky-toned chocolate alongside sweet fruit. Particularly pleasing in three parts milk.
