Blind Assessment: Delicate, soft, silky. Honey, night-blooming flowers, cocoa butter, vanilla in aroma and cup. Gentle but lively, floral-toned acidity; buoyant, silky mouthfeel. Vanilla in particular carries into a quietly flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: This coffee has benefited from the “million-pesos” program, which guarantees farmers a significant premium for coffees rated 90 points and above. Papa Lin's Coffee Roasting is a “nano” roaster located in Yorktown Heights, New York, that focuses on carefully sourced, extremely high-quality specialty coffees that are custom-roasted to the preference of every customer.
