Blind Assessment: Deeply and richly sweet, cocoa-toned. Baker’s chocolate, fig cookie, agave syrup, oak, freesia-like flowers in aroma and cup. Richly sweet structure with brisk acidity; full, creamy mouthfeel. Resonant finish centers around baking chocolate and freesia.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 18 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2019. Produced in Jamaica from Bourbon Rey, a rare tree variety preserved and propagated by Gonzalo Hernandez on his innovative Coffea Diversa Farm in Costa Rica. Processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Paradise Roasters specializes in microlot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A multi-layered Jamaica coffee with distinct chocolate and spicy floral tones and a throughline of dried fruit reminiscent of fig.
