Blind Assessment: Big, sweetly pungent. Fudgy chocolate, strawberry, lily-like flowers, fresh-cut cedar in aroma and cup. Rich, round, juicy acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a deep, chocolate-toned finish.
Notes: Produced at around 6,000 feet from trees of the Caturra variety of Arabica. In 2013 the farm was attacked by bandits, who stole much of the harvest and destroyed essential equipment. Owing to a fundraising effort by PT’s, coffee farmer Armando and his family were able to secure the essentials to complete their production. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit www.ptscoffee.com or call 888-678-5282 for more information.
Who Should Drink It : Those who enjoy the big, rich style of Colombia cup, with the chocolaty sweetness balanced by a crisp cedary edge.
