Blind Assessment: Nut, honeyed flowers and tart cherry dominate the aroma. In the cup the acidity is intense but rounded, the mouthfeel syrupy, the structure sweet, the aromatics deep: the flowers turn softly pungent and spicy, the fruit richer and more complex. In the finish the honeyed sweetness envelops a slight astringency.
Notes: Simple naming and austere packaging for this Colombia offered by the high-end luxury coffee line of R. Miguel Meza, one of the most innovative and gifted of the new generation of specialty coffee buyers and roasters. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Not an extremely light-roasted coffee, but it reads that way: bright, pure, austerely refreshing.
