Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Winey and musky, richly chocolaty. Dark chocolate, red wine barrel, musk, black sage, toasted walnut in aroma and small cup. Full, syrupy mouthfeel; winey, chocolaty finish. In cappuccino format, deeply aromatic, perfumed with musk-like florals supported by very rich chocolate notes.
Notes: Produced by Rigoberto and Rodrigo Herrera of Finca Potosi entirely of the Colombia variety of Arabica, and processed by a “hybrid natural” method, simply meaning the coffee was both fermented and dried in the whole fruit. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit www.ptscoffee.com or call 888-678-JAVA for more information.
The Bottom Line: A fruit-forward Colombia, satiating in its herbaceous, savory depth and fruity lift, which play in harmony both in the straight shot and in cappuccino format.
