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.
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.
