Blind Assessment: An almost miraculously fine decaffeinated straight-shot espresso. In the nose crisp, elegant: leather, aromatic wood, hints of chocolate and yellow-fleshed fruit - peach or papaya. In the small cup syrupy mouthfeel, with intensified fruit, fresh-cut aromatic wood, butter, caramel, cocoa. The finish is balanced, sweet, deep, long. Predictably sweet and chocolate-toned in milk, though perhaps a bit too delicate.
Notes: Paradise Roasters prides itself on roasting and shipping coffee only after orders are placed. Its metaphoric mission is to bring some paradisiacal warmth from the coffee-growing south to the cool environs of Minnesota. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Superb straight-shot espresso for caffeine-avoiders: complete, balanced but complex.
