Blind Assessment:

Delicately and richly sweet. Orange marmalade, tea rose, fresh-cut fir, cashew in aroma and cup. Round, bittersweet acidity; full, lightly velvety mouthfeel. Fir and plum predominate in the quietly sweet, slightly drying finish.


Purchased as whole bean in a 12-ounce foil bag with one-way degassing valve at a Safeway supermarket in northern California. This sample was roasted and packaged at Mr. Espresso’s Oakland, California facility. Mr. Espresso is a San Francisco Bay Area wholesale roaster and espresso parts distributer that slow-roasts its coffees using traditional wood-fired roasting machines.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a pleasingly accessible, fruit-and-nut-toned Colombia.
