Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Subtly complex in aroma and small cup: brown sugar, fir, dark chocolate, raisin, with a brightening hint of lemon. Syrupy mouthfeel. The dark chocolate becomes more distinct in the finish and in two parts milk blossoms with depth and sweetness.
Notes: This espresso blend is Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning the blend components were produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Calgary-based Fratello is a second-generation boutique coffee roaster owned by three brothers who focus on responsible trade relationships with coffee growers. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Smooth-bodied, quietly complex, versatile espresso.
