Blind Assessment: Floral, citrusy, delicate yet deeply sweet. Honeysuckle, blood orange, sugar cane, nougat, cocoa nib in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with high-toned, juicy acidity; plush, lively mouthfeel. The crisp finish centers around notes of honeysuckle, blood orange and cocoa nib.
Notes: Produced by Deiro Garcia in Colombia at Finca Lord Baltimore entirely of the Ethiopia landrace Papayo variety, and fermented in the whole fruit inside a hermetically sealed vessel, making it one version of what the coffee industry has come to call “anaerobic” or limited-oxygen processing. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
The Bottom Line : A bright, richly aromatic Colombia cup from a rare tree variety worth seeking out: intricately balanced, exceptionally high-toned, both rich and delicate.
