In the aroma intense aromatic wood notes suggested cedar to Ken, pine to co-cupper Rodger Owen. The sweet spice and low-toned fruit notes fade in a roast-influenced, rather simple cup, balanced but limited. The sweet spice suggestions surfaced again in an admirably long, resonant finish.
Shade-grown and produced by some of the 1,350 members of the Coopepalmares Cooperative. Stone Cup Roasting is a boutique roasting company in the reviving and attractive city of Chattanooga. Visit
