Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Extremely sweet, intentionally fermenty, wine-like aroma. Red wine, salted caramel, gardenia, pomelo, hazelnut brittle in aroma and small cup. Plush, syrupy mouthfeel; crisply nut-toned and caramelly finish. In milk, this coffee is dessert-like in its impossibly deep sweetness.
Notes: Produced at Finca Jardines del Eden entirely of the Caturra variety of Arabica, and processed by an experimental variation on the fermented natural method that involves freezing the whole fruit for five days before drying. GK Coffee is a nano-roastery in Yilan, Taiwan that offers both retail and wholesale coffee. For more information, visit www.gkcoffee.com.tw or email [email protected]
The Bottom Line: Designed for milk drinks, this very sweet, very rich-toned experimentally processed Colombia coffee is for fans of caramelly, nutty profiles with intentional wine-like ferment.
