Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned, straightforward, comfortable. Brown sugar, cocoa, gardenia, hazelnut, a hint of orange marmalade in aroma and cup. Balanced in structure, with gentle, round acidity; delicately plush mouthfeel. The exceptionally sweet finish consolidates around flowers, cocoa, hazelnut.
Notes: Produced by Rene Contreras on the family farm in Monte Verde and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Speedwell Coffee, based in Plymouth, Massachusetts, is a wholesale and retail specialty roaster particularly dedicated to offering attractive coffee subscription plans.

The Bottom Line: A subtly seductive, easy-drinking cup with quiet but absorbing aromatic intrigue.
