Blind Assessment: Richly chocolaty, sweetly fermenty. Cherry cordial, chocolate fudge, almond brittle, fine musk, gardenia in aroma and cup. Brightly sweet structure with juicy, winey acidity; full, viscous mouthfeel. Crisply chocolaty, fruity finish with a whisper of alcohol ferment.
Notes: Produced by Rigoberto and Rodrigo Herrera of Finca Potosi entirely of the Colombia variety of Arabica, and processed by a “hybrid natural” method, meaning the coffee was both fermented and dried in the whole fruit.

The Bottom Line: A delicately fermenty, richly chocolaty fruit bomb from a Colombia producer now well-known for creative processing experiments.
