Blind Assessment: Intense aroma combining notes of peach, flowers and nut. The sweet peach and floral tones soften in the cup, complicated by suggestions of tart lemon and bittersweet chocolate. Citrusy acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavors simplify in a walnut-edged finish.
Notes: Certified organically grown by farmer Rosa Abad and a prize winner at Ecuador’s Taza Dorada (Golden Cup) competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed second out of hundreds of entries.
