Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Sweetly and deeply tart, floral and chocolaty. Passion fruit, dark chocolate, cedar, lilac, myrrh in aroma and small cup. Syrupy though rather dry in the mouthfeel; richly tart in the finish. Remains bright in three parts milk: chocolate, cedar and flowers.

Notes:

A blend of natural-processed and wet-processed coffees from the celebrated Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia, together with a wet-processed coffee from Kenya. MoonMoon Coffee is a Taiwan community coffee retailer and roaster that believes that “coffee is life, and we keep making the coffee better.” MoonMoon in mandarin means “friends.” For more information visit www.facebook.com/mu2coffee/.

The Bottom Line: A bright, intense espresso, fragrant and complex both in the straight shot and in milk.
