Blind Assessment: Rich-toned, chocolaty. Dark chocolate, cedar, rhododendron, date, sassafras in aroma and cup. Bittersweet structure with gently tart acidity; light, silky mouthfeel. A quiet finish consolidates around notes of dark chocolate and rhododendron.
Notes: This coffee tied for the fifth-highest rating in a cupping of single-origin coffees available in U.S. supermarkets for Coffee Review’s February 2020 report. Purchased at a Harris-Teeter supermarket in Clemmons, North Carolina. HT Trader’s is the store brand of Harris-Teeter, a South Atlantic states supermarket chain owned by Kroger.

The Bottom Line: A comfortingly familiar, darker roasted Colombia cup built around dark chocolate with undertones of vanilla-like florals.
