Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned, fruit-forward, delicately floral. Dried strawberry, lilac, cocoa nib, almond brittle, wild honey in aroma and cup. Deeply sweet structure with rich, vibrant acidity; full, viscous mouthfeel. Finish leads with notes of dried strawberry and honey in the short, rounding to cocoa nib in the long.
Notes: Produced by Marta Yaneth Lemus of Finca San Antonio entirely of the Geisha variety of Arabica and processed by the natural method (i.e., dried in the whole fruit). Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
The Bottom Line : An elegant, lyrical natural-process El Salvador Geisha cup, sweetly fruit- and floral-toned; a coffee that steps lightly but with poise and balance.
