Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet-savory, spice-toned. Watermelon, sassafras, clove (and other baking spices), cashew, magnolia in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure with brisk acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. Finish leads with notes of clove, cashew and magnolia.
Notes: Produced by Don Luis Campos of Cordillera del Fuego farm and processed by the “thermic” method, in which beans, with skins removed, are heated with some of the fruit flesh or mucilage still adhering to them. The exposure to heat starts to break down the natural sugars of the mucilage, partially caramelizing it. RamsHead Coffee Roasters is a family-owned company founded by Bozeman, Montana, natives Caleb and Laura Walker that specializes in direct trade microlot coffees.

The Bottom Line: A floral-toned anaerobic Costa Rica cup with warming spices — clove, cinnamon, nutmeg — throughout.
