Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Sweet, deep, balanced. Dark chocolate, grapefruit, fresh-cut cedar, crisp flowers – lavender, freesia – in aroma and small cup. Heavy, syrupy, almost chewy mouthfeel; dark chocolate and cedar in a rich though drying finish. Strong presence in three parts milk: dark chocolate, cedar, flowers, anise.
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: A classic espresso on steroids: big, syrupy, complex.
