Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned, with attractive savory undercurrents. Tangerine zest, magnolia, tamari, black cherry, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Sweetly savory structure with lightly juicy acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is characterized by cocoa-toned citrus notes, with magnolia-like flowers underneath.
Notes: Produced entirely from trees of the bold-beaned Pacamara variety of Arabica by Jose Armando Portillo at Finca El Conrrodal. Conscious Cup Coffee Roasters is an independent and family-owned and operated cafe and coffee roaster specializing in socially and environmentally sustainable coffees.

The Bottom Line: A classic Pacamara cup that finesses the sweet-savory paradox: simultaneous sweet fruit and floral impulses coupled with umami depth and intrigue.
