Blind Assessment: High-toned, richly sweet, delicately tart. Apple blossom, pomegranate, toffee, narcissus, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with juicy, vibrant acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Resonant finish consolidates to toffee and cedar with a hint of narcissus-like flowers in the long.
Notes: Available for delivery in the San Francisco Bay Area; no mail order. Produced entirely of the Colombia and Caturra varieties of Arabica and processed by the wet, or washed, method. Founded by roaster Keith Gehrke in 2015, States Coffee is a single-location community-focused coffee shop in downtown Martinez, California, featuring coffee roasted in-house and artisan baked goods.

The Bottom Line: A bright, lively Colombia cup with tart fruit, sweet floral, and deep toffee notes throughout — elegantly structured.
