Blind Assessment: A bright-toned cup with an intense aroma. Flavors combine sweet and tart citrus, round toasty notes and hints of baking spice. Clean, crisp and softly astringent in the finish, with sweet citrus reemerging and lingering in the long.
Notes: A prize winner in the 2010 El Salvador Cup of Excellence (www.cupofexcellence.org) competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed fourth out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 89.25 from an international jury. This is one of Green Mountain's "Special Reserve" series of select small lots of seasonally available coffees.
