Blind Assessment: Richly sweet, high-toned. Mulberry, dark chocolate, agave syrup, lemon verbena, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with juicy-bright acidity; very full, syrupy mouthfeel. Resonant, long, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Produced by Mario Andrade and Jose Martin Obando from trees of the Bourbon and Caturra varieties of Arabica, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried).

The Bottom Line: A compelling berry- and chocolate-driven Ecuador cup with juicy acidity and a plush mouthfeel.
