Blind Assessment: Richly pungent, deeply floral. Molasses, vanilla, ripe plum, night-blooming flowers, a hint of savory-sweet spice in aroma and cup. Soft, gently crisp acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Crisply dry in the short finish; a floral sweetness blooms in the long.
Notes: Produced by Yaneth Gil in the admired high-elevation coffee growing community of Monserrate, this segregated lot B is a particularly refined example of the Monserrate production. Cod? Coffee is a small-batch coffee roaster located in Denver, Colorado, begun by two brothers with a passion for quality coffee and exemplary sustainable practices.
