Blind Assessment: This deeply nuanced coffee requires patience to fully engage its originality and distinction. Sweet-savory in structure with honey, lilac, roasted cacao nib and ripe peach in aroma and cup. Plump, juicy acidity; an almost honeyish viscosity in the mouthfeel. Lilac, honey and cacao nib in particular carry into a long, flavor-saturated finish.
