Blind Assessment: Complex, delicate, richly sweet. Mango, blood orange, nougat, violet, myrrh in aroma and cup. Vibrant, juicy acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. All of the fruit, flower, nut and exotic spice notes carry through a deep, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Comprised entirely of beans from the rare Sudan Rume, a presumably very old variety of arabica originally selected from wild trees growing on the Boma Plateau of Sudan, close to the border with Ethiopia. This is a wet-processed or “washed” version, meaning that the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the seeds or beans before they were dried. Produced by farmer Rigoberto Herrera at Granja La Esperanza in Colombia, an innovative producer that specializes in impressive and innovative work with unusual cultivars of Arabica. 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 interested in experiencing a rare coffee variety, expertly roasted, that lives up to is rare billing in the cup.
