Blind Assessment: Subtly extravagant. Rich night flowers, crisp cocoa, hints of tangerine and fir in aroma and cup. Quiet acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Rich, flavor-saturated finish turns slightly heavy in the long.
Notes: This coffee was entirely produced from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica and was processed using the honey method, which means that the outer skin is removed as it is in the wet process, but all or some of the sticky fruit residue is allowed to dry on the bean and later removed by machine along with the parchment skin. This coffee is Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Klatch Coffee is an award-winning small-batch roasting company in the Los Angeles area whose resident barista and trainer, Heather Perry, won both the 2003 and 2007 United States Barista Championships brewing a Klatch Coffee espresso blend.
