Blind Assessment: Delicate, crisply sweet. Pistachio, fir, lime zest, freesia, brown sugar in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with gentle acidity; velvety mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of fir and lime zest.
Notes: Produced at Finca El Pintado from trees of the Bourbon and Geisha varieties of Arabica, and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Certified USDA organic.
