Blind Assessment: Richly sweet-savory. Pomegranate, fine musk, nougat, cedar, a hint of marjoram in aroma and cup. Savory-sweet structure with round, gentle acidity; full, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Finish consolidates to nougat and pomegranate in the short with musk returning in the long.
Notes: Produced by Lucia Abregado De Ortiz of Finca Las Mercedes entirely of the admired, big-beaned Pacamara variety of Arabica and processed by the honey method. With all honey processing methods, some sweet pulp or fruit flesh (“honey”) is allowed to adhere to the beans during drying. 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.

The Bottom Line: A deeply sweet Pacamara cup with savory undertones throughout, reminiscent of fine musk and marjoram-like sweet herbs.
