Blind Assessment:

Sweet-toned, straightforward, some layered complexity. Raisiny dark chocolate, plum, orange zest, fresh-cut cedar, a hint of lily-like flowers in aroma and cup. Rich, rounded acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate and orange in particular carry into a balanced finish.

Notes:

Finca El Llano (short for Llano Bonito de Leon Cortes) is one of ten estates that make up the Don Mayo Beneficio. The Bean Fruit motto is a Biblical quotation from Galatians 5:22-23: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Visit www.beanfruit.com or call 601-624-2605 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a classic American breakfast cup with quietly rounded acidity and pleasing nuance.
