Blind Assessment: Delicate, crisply sweet. Violet candy, hazelnut butter, lemon verbena, molasses, cedar in aroma and cup. Bright, juicy acidity; lightly silky mouthfeel. The quiet finish settles to notes of lemon verbena and molasses.
Notes: Produced by Anny Pimentel entirely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica and processed by the conventional wet or “washed” method, in which skin and fruit flesh are removed from the beans or seeds before they are dried. This coffee tied for the fourth-highest rating in a tasting of women-produced coffees for Coffee Review‘s June 2017 tasting report.Old Soul is a roastery, bakery and crafter of artisan goods dedicated to quality in every form.

The Bottom Line : An accessible, balanced, crisply sweet cup offering quiet aromatic surprises.
