Blind Assessment: Caramel- and floral-toned. Salted caramel, lilac, Nutella, orange zest, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with gentle, round acidity; lightly syrupy, vibrant mouthfeel. Rich, caramelly finish with undertones of Nutella and orange zest.
Notes: Produced at Finca Potosi from trees of the Caturra and Colombia varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed before drying). Founded in 2013, modcup coffee focuses on fresh roasting and distinctive natural-processed coffees. Visit modcup.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A rich, delicately floral Colombia cup with suggestions of sweet citrus complicated by attractive hints of aromatic wood.
