Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Intense cedary, fruit-toned wood in the aroma; some acidity in the cup, with chewy, raisiny fruit notes leaning toward dark chocolate. A hint of flowers at the top. Strong presence in two parts milk: full mouthfeel, bittersweet chocolate, with the aromatic wood nuance rounding toward nut.
Notes: Produced from trees of the Bourbon and Typica varieties at an elevation of approximately 4,800 feet by farmer Ernesto Pacas Diaz and his wife Blanca Estela on the award winning Santa Sofia farm.
