Blind Assessment: Multi-layered, richly sweet. Dried plum, hazelnut butter, bergamot, magnolia, oak in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with brisk acidity; full, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Crisply nut-toned finish with undertones of bergamot.
Notes: Produced by the Urena family from trees of the Red and Yellow Catuaí, Caturra and Villa Sarchi varieties of Arabica, and processed by the black honey method, in which the skins are removed from the fruit but virtually all of the fruit flesh or mucilage is allowed to dry on the beans. Rusty Dog Coffee is a Madison, Wisconsin-based specialty coffee roaster. Visit www.rustydogcoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A cleanly fruit-forward, invitingly floral Costa Rica cup processed by the black honey method.
