Blind Assessment: Sweet, deep-toned, balanced coffee. Chocolate, citrus, nut and a hint of flowers in the aroma. In the cup richly rounded acidity, buttery mouthfeel. The soft citrus notes are more prominent in the cup, with continued complications of chocolate, nut and a bare suggestion of flowers. The citrus in particular carries into a resonant finish.
Notes: Grown and processed by the Oro Dominicano Estate in the Dominican Republic. Coffea Roasterie is a South Dakota based wholesale and retail roaster with a small but refined selection of mostly single-origin coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A classic Caribbean cup: rich, deep, low in acidity, quietly complex.
