Blind Assessment: Fruit-forward, high-toned. Pink grapefruit zest, rhododendron, baking chocolate, agave syrup, freesia in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with brisk acidity; very full, syrupy mouthfeel. Crisply sweet, floral-toned finish with citrus undertones.
Notes: Produced at Vergel Estate entirely of the Java variety of Arabica, and processed by the anaerobic natural method (whole fruit is fermented with limited oxygen before drying). 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 clean, intensely fruit-toned anaerobically processed Colombia cup, citrusy and bright.
