|Roaster Location:||Taoyuan City, Taiwan|
|Est. Price:||NT $2,000/16 ounces|
|Review Date:||May 2015|
Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Tart, rich, complex. Dark chocolate, blood orange, sandalwood, narcissus-like flowers in aroma and small cup. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel; sandalwood, citrus and flowers carry into a dry but resonant finish. Softens yet retains its tart richness in three parts milk.
Notes: In addition to his retail roasting operation Aroma Roast Coffees, Simon Hsieh also operates Soaring Phoenix Trading, a business focused on purposed-built commercial espresso blends and high quality single-origin coffees.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a tartly bright, yet deeply resonant and complex espresso.
