Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet-tart, fruit-toned. Vanilla yogurt, Ibarra chocolate (chocolate with cinnamon), gardenia, amber, date in aroma and cup. Rich, sweetly tart structure with bright, tangy acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Resonant, flavor-laden, long finish.
Notes: Produced by Diofanor Ruiz of Buenavista Farm entirely of the Castillo variety of Arabica and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Plat Coffee is a specialty roaster and café in Hong Kong. For more information, visit https://www.platcoffee.com.
The Bottom Line: A uniquely composed natural-processed coffee with unusual yogurt-like nuance layered with chocolate, fruit and floral suggestions.
