Blind Assessment: Citrusy, spice-toned. Dried orange zest, baking spices, golden raisin, hazelnut, fresh-cut oak in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with brisk acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The crisp finish is redolent with dried orange zest and baking spices.
Notes: Produced by Oscar Omar Alonzo of Finca Cual Bicicleta entirely of the Catuai variety of Arabica and processed by the natural method (beans are dried in the whole fruit). Merge is a specialty coffee roaster in Harrisonburg, Virginia dedicated to ethical sourcing of high-quality coffees. Visit www.mergecoffeeco.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A pleasing Honduras cup: citrus-forward with a throughline of warming spices (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg).
