Blind Assessment:

Elegantly floral, strikingly complex. Roasted cacao nib, jasmine, caramel, dried raspberry and cinnamon in aroma and cup. Vibrantly rich, balanced acidity; delicate, velvety mouthfeel. Flavor notes carry intact through the strikingly long, satisfying finish.


This exceptional coffee was selected as the #30 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2016.  Farmer Juan Peña produced this micro-lot of fine coffee entirely from trees of the traditional Typica variety of Arabica. At Turning Point Coffee each coffee is micro-roasted to order, allowing for an intense focus on the quality and consistency of the product. Located in the San Francisco neighborhood of Inner Richmond, Turning Point not only provides uncompromising quality, but also a personal relationship with friends and neighbors.

The Bottom Line: A sparklingly pure, lighter-roasted Ecuador coffee that is as elegant as it is invitingly complex.
