|Review Date:||April 2020|
Blind Assessment: Sweet-savory, richly layered. Persimmon, dogwood flowers, mesquite, brown sugar, a hint of pipe tobacco in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with brisk acidity; smooth, velvety mouthfeel. The flavor-saturated short finish consolidates to persimmon and pipe tobacco.
Notes: This coffee tied for the fourth-highest rating in a cupping of coffees from roasters in the northwestern U.S. for Coffee Review’s April 2020 tasting report. Produced by members of the Rebuild Women’s Hope Cooperative entirely of local strains of the Bourbon variety of Arabica and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Ghost Town is a small-batch roaster, wholesaler, equipment supplier and training resource located in Bozeman, Montana that takes great care in responsibly sourcing top-quality specialty coffees.

The Bottom Line: A richly sweet, earth-toned Congo coffee with sales benefitting a women-owned cooperative.
