Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet. Pecan, red apple, oak, caramel, lily in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with crisply brisk acidity; velvety mouthfeel. The gently drying finish centers around pecan and oak notes.
Notes: Produced by Elizabeth Salazar from trees of the Caturra and Catuai 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. King’s Gambit is a specialty coffee roaster based in Belvedere, New Jersey. Visit www.kingsgambitcoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A quiet, gently sweet, very crisp black-honey processed Costa Rica cup.
