Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Chocolaty and richly bittersweet. Green apple, baking chocolate, black walnut, scorched allspice, fresh-cut fir in aroma and small cup. Delicate, smooth mouthfeel; punchy, chocolate- and walnut-toned finish. Three parts milk elevates both chocolate and spice and adds lily-like flowers to the profile.
Notes: A blend of a natural-processed Brazil, a washed Colombia, and a natural Ethiopia roasted for espresso.

The Bottom Line: A friendly, confident espresso blend, particularly nuanced and complex in three parts milk.
