Blind Assessment: This complex, fruity, softly intense coffee unleashed a torrent of description from the panel. On aroma: "sweet cocoa, dried cherries"; "very strong & fruity." Descriptions of acidity included sweet, floral, fruity. Body: buttery yet light. Cup: fruity, sweet, "strong honey notes, very nice, very different." The odd intensity of this coffee, arresting yet restrained, disturbed two panelists: "Some may call this coffee pleasingly complex, but I find it a little wild," declared one. Count me in the pleasingly complex camp. I loved this coffee.
Notes: Pleasingly complex - perhaps wild - with notes of sweet cocoa, dried cherry, and honey. A private mill coffee exported by Guillermo Botero Mejia. Partly shade grown from trees of the traditional typica variety at an elevation of approximately 6,000 feet.
