Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Delicate, floral-and fruit-toned. Wisteria, dried apricot, sandalwood, almond brittle, molasses in aroma and small cup. Full, syrupy mouthfeel; delicate, long finish. Wisteria and apricot notes sing in three parts milk, balanced by deep almond brittle and molasses with undertones of sandalwood.
Notes: Processed by the red honey method, meaning that some fruit flesh or “honey” was allowed to adhere to the beans during drying. Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A nuanced, multi-layered red honey coffee from Costa Rica, deftly roasted for espresso bringing the floral and fruit notes forward.
