Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Richly aromatic, deeply fruit-toned. Dried apricot, sandalwood, narcissus, almond, dark chocolate in aroma and small cup. Viscous, syrupy mouthfeel; quiet, cleanly fruit-centered finish. In cappuccino-scaled milk, apricot and narcissus notes particularly please.
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 cleanly fruit-forward Costa Rica coffee roasted for espresso, with notes of dried stone fruit, dark chocolate, and spice-toned florals.
