Blind Assessment: Richly floral-toned, elegant, complex. Star jasmine, tangerine zest, violet candy, cocoa nib, apricot in aroma and cup. Very bright, juicy, delicately sweet-tart structure with high-toned acidity; lush, silky mouthfeel. The long, resonant, lingering finish carries over all the notes from the cup.
Notes: Produced at Finca Cruz Loma from the Typica Mejorado and Sidra varieties of Arabica, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). This coffee won first place in the 2021 Taza Dorada competition for Ecuador green coffees. Paradise 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: A beautifully structured, floral-toned Ecuador cup with elegantly bright acidity and lyrically plush mouthfeel.
