Blind Assessment: Lyrically sweet, juicy, elegantly bright. Strawberry guava, coconut, hop flowers, narcissus, lemon balm in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart with juicy, tantalizing acidity; delicate, very silky mouthfeel. Resonant, long, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: SOT Coffee Roaster, based in Osaka, Japan, is a Swedish-style roaster with a self-described “aggressively light” roasting style. This coffee was produced by Diego Samuel Bermudez Tapia of the Castillo, Caturra and Colombia varieties of Arabica and processed by a “double-anaerobic method” (subject to oxygen-restricted fermentation first in the whole fruit, then, after skins are removed, in the fruit flesh).

The Bottom Line: An exquisitely refined ultra-light-roasted coffee from Japan, all fruit and flowers, at turns delicate and mysterious, and consistently confident and engaging.
