Blind Assessment:

Lively aroma, with fresh-cut cedar and cherry-chocolate notes. In the cup simple but deeply resonant, with hints of flowers, chocolate and cherry-leaning fruit shimmering through the gentle roastiness.

Notes:

From the celebrated Chanchamayo growing region. Decaffeinated using liquefied carbon dioxide rather than a solvent to extract the caffeine. Counter Culture Coffee is a small but industry-leading wholesale roaster specializing in sustainable coffees and custom blends. Visit www.counterculturecoffee.com or call 888-238-5282 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: An easy, comfortable darker-roasted coffee, soothing but not boring.
