Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Sweet, musky, pungent. Baker’s chocolate, apricot, mint, lily in aroma and small cup. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel; the chocolate note carries into a rich though drying finish. Crisp and balanced in three parts milk, with continued chocolate and apricot suggestions.


Coffees in this blend were decaffeinated by the “Swiss Water Process” method, which does not involve use of solvents. Caffè Luxxe is an Italian-inflected artisan roaster and retailer that emphasizes both its coffee knowledge and precision and its straightforward lack of pretension.
