Blind Assessment:

Crisp, richly sweet. Baker’s chocolate, mango, fresh humus, maple syrup, narcissus-like flowers in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with round, gentle acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Notes of cocoa-toned mango lead the short finish, with fresh humus in the long.


709 Boutique Coffee was founded in 2010 as a coffee shop in Taichung. Roaster Huang Yu Hao offers both freshly roasted coffee and home-roasting lessons for customers. Visit https://goo.gl/gPXokY for more information.

The Bottom Line: A chocolaty blend with notes of tropical fruit and sweet earth tones.
