|Coffee Origin:||Huila, Colombia|
|Est. Price:||$23.00/6 ounces|
|Review Date:||August 2020|
Blind Assessment: Deep-toned, richly sweet. Cherry, brown sugar, grapefruit zest, dark chocolate, baking spices in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with round, lively acidity; crisply smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Baking spices and dark chocolate characterize the inviting finish.
Notes: This coffee tied for the fourth-highest rating in a cupping of coffees roasted by Black-owned coffee companies for Coffee Review’s August 2020 report. Produced by members of the Terra Association entirely of the Geisha variety of Arabica and processed by the honey method, in which some fruit flesh (“honey”) is allowed to adhere to the beans during drying. Dr. Bean’s is a small-batch coffee roaster and café based in Memphis, Tennessee. Visit https://dr-beans-coffee-and-tea.myshopify.com/ for more information.
The Bottom Line: An accessible honey-processed Colombia Geisha with notes of chocolate and baking spices as pleasing throughline.
