Blind Assessment: Rich, deep, yet delicate. Tangerine, rose-like flowers, fresh-cut cedar, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Lively, levitating acidity; light but silky mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a sweetly crisp finish.
Notes: Established in the first decade of the twentieth-century, Finca Laderas del Tapias devotes forty-percent of its arable land to protected forest and is in the process of becoming Rainforest Alliance certified. Victrola is a small-batch, hands-on roaster with a passionate commitment to quality and distinctiveness. Visit www.victrolacoffee.com or call 206-624-1725 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Classic Latin-American coffee, poised and delicately rich in structure, resonantly engaging in aroma and flavor.
