Blind Assessment:

Sweet and delicately rich. Strawberry, almond, honeysuckle, cedar in aroma and cup. Crisp, balanced acidity; buoyant, velvety mouthfeel. Berry and nut flavors resonate in a richly drying finish.

Notes:

Produced by Nestor Nino at his farm, San Alejo and comprised entirely of beans from trees of the unusual and impressive Sidra variety of arabica, a cultivar specific to Ecuador. It is a washed coffee, meaning that the skin and fruit pulp were removed or “washed” from the beans before they were dried.
