Blind Assessment: Sweetly spice-toned. Mexican chocolate (chocolate and cinnamon), roasted almond, magnolia-like flowers, gently scorched oak, dried plum in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure with gentle, rounded acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The richly drying finish consolidates to notes of Mexican chocolate and magnolia, with suggestions of smoky aromatic wood.
Notes: Produced by Jairo Alcaraz at Finca La Honda of the Caturra and Colombia varieties of Arabica. This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying.

The Bottom Line: A rich-toned Colombia cup, deftly roasted to foreground chocolate and spice notes.
