Blind Assessment: Citrus- and chocolate-toned. Candied mandarin, dark chocolate, hazelnut butter, wisteria, fresh-cut oak in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with bright, balanced acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Crisply sweet, citrusy finish with dark chocolate undertones.
Notes: Produced by Felipe Trujillo of Finca La Ventolera entirely of the Castillo variety of Arabica, and processed by the anaerobic natural method (the coffee cherries are fermented in the whole fruit with limited access to oxygen before they are dried). Nostalgia Coffee Roasters was founded by Taylor Fields in 2018 as a mobile café; it has since added specialty roasting and online sales of select fine coffees.

The Bottom Line: A harmoniously composed anaerobically processed Colombia, subtly original, satisfyingly complex.
