Blind Assessment: Delicately sweet-tart. Candy apple, green banana, grapefruit zest, brown sugar, marjoram in aroma and cup. Gently sweet structure with pert acidity; viscous, lively mouthfeel. The quiet finish consolidates to notes of tropical and citrus fruits and sweet garden herbs.
Notes: Produced by Bruhwer Coffee at La Hormiga Farm of the Caturra and Typica varieties of Arabica and processed by the natural (dried in the whole fruit) method with a two-day anaerobic (limited oxygen) fermentation stage. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
The Bottom Line: An unassuming, quietly complex natural-processed Ecuador cup with added intrigue from a partial anaerobic fermentation step.
