Blind Assessment:

Elegant, tropical, rich-toned. Strawberry guava, honeysuckle, almond, sandalwood, cacao nib in aroma and cup. Richly sweet structure with bright, vibrant acidity; lush, syrupy mouthfeel. Lingering notes of strawberry and honeysuckle in the delicate finish.

Notes:

Produced by Angel Ortega and Irma Blancos (both members of the San Agustin Cooperative) entirely of the Pink Bourbon variety of Arabica and processed by the wet or washed method. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.

The Bottom Line: A beautiful fruit- and floral-toned Colombia cup with undertones of rich chocolate and resonant sandalwood.
