Blind Assessment: Exceptionally high-toned, sweetly tart, chocolaty. Juicy peach, dark chocolate, caramel, pink peppercorn, fresh-cut cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with sparkling acidity; full, creamy mouthfeel. In the spice-toned finish sweet pink-peppercorn notes transform to something resembling Szechuan peppers, supported by dark chocolate and peach.
Notes: This coffee tied for the second-highest rating in a cupping of coffees roasted by Black-owned coffee companies for Coffee Review’s August 2020 report. Produced by German Peña of Finca Roblar from trees of the Caturra, Castillo and Colombia varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method. BeanFruit Coffee Co. is an award-winning coffee roasting company located in the Jackson, Mississippi metro area that provides fresh-roasted coffee with a focus on single origins.

The Bottom Line: A nuanced, voluptuous Colombia cup with distinct notes of stone fruit, dark chocolate, and complex peppercorn tones: balanced, bright, juicy, deep.
