Blind Assessment: Deeply rich, sweetly savory. Pomelo, myrrh, dried apricot, dark chocolate, the pungent herb epazote in aroma and cup. Juicy-sweet structure with tart, zesty acidity; plush, creamy mouthfeel. The resonant finish centers around notes of apricot and chocolate with hints of tarragon.
Notes: Produced by Rigoberto and Rodrigo Herrera at Finca Potosí of Café Granja Esperanza from trees of the Caturra and Colombia varieties of Arabica, and processed by the anaerobic natural method (fruit is fermented in the whole fruit with limited access to oxygen). Big Shoulders Coffee is a Chicago artisan roaster that emphasizes a fresh-roasted, no-nonsense approach to fine coffee. Visit www.bigshoulderscoffee.com or call 312-846-1439 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A harmony of sweet-tart-savory notes ranging from dried stone fruit to esoteric culinary herbs characterizes this anaerobic-processed Colombia.
