|Review Date:||July 2022|
Blind Assessment: Richly floral, fruit-toned, balanced. Passion fruit, pink peppercorn, star jasmine, cocoa nib, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with vibrant acidity; syrupy, viscous mouthfeel. The spicy-floral finish leads with notes of star jasmine and cocoa nib.
Notes: Produced by Aida Batlle at La Florida Farm from trees of the Bourbon and Pacas varieties of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Moore Coffee is a roast-to-order artisan coffee roasting company with a well-developed Internet business and wholesale accounts. Visit www.moorecoffee.com or call 800-994-8060 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A nuanced, multi-layered natural-processed El Salvador cup, elegantly floral, deeply fruit-forward and intricately balanced.
