Deep, rich, chocolaty. The chocolate is nut-toned and fudge-like and complicated by raspberry-like fruit, night flowers and a hint of pungent cedar. Gentle, juicy acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor fades slightly in the finish, but remains sweet and chocolate-toned with perhaps a deepening hint of savory.
Farmer Carlos Imbachi’s Finca Buenavista won first place in the Specialty Coffee Association of America’s Coffee of the Year competition in both 2009 and 2010. CaféTaster is an aficionado nano-roaster of the style increasingly characteristic of East Asia countries like Taiwan and Korea, roasting very high-end coffees in very small volumes for a tiny clientele of passionate coffee enthusiasts, in the process selling coffee education as much as coffee itself.

Who Should Drink It
Those who enjoy the chocolate sensation at play in a complex matrix of fruit and floral nuance.
