Blind Assessment: Deeply fruity, sweetly fermenty, headily floral. Strawberry coulis, brandy, almond butter, toffee, honeysuckle in aroma and cup. Richly sweet-tart structure with juicy, bright acidity; viscous, syrupy mouthfeel. Sustained flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Produced by Rigoberto Herrera at Granja La Esperanza in Colombia, a producer that specializes in innovation, in this case applying a complex version of the natural process to successfully intensify sweetness and fruit to coffee from trees of the normally rather plain-tasting Colombia variety. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit www.ptscoffee.com or call 888-678-JAVA for more information.
The Bottom Line : A bombshell of a coffee with enough personality to stand up to a lemon tart — for breakfast, of course.
