Blind Assessment: Deeply rich, brightly floral. Blueberry jam, grapefruit, hyssop, honeysuckle, cocoa powder in aroma and cup. Vibrantly sweet acidity; light, satiny mouthfeel. The resonant, richly drying finish opens with grapefruit notes, then deepens to sweet complexity (blueberry, cocoa powder) in the long.
Notes: Produced entirely from trees of the traditional Typica variety of Arabica at El Sitio farm. This is a wet-processed or “washed” version, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying.

The Bottom Line : A lovely, classic coffee from the relatively unrecognized origin of Ecuador: bright and balanced, with a sweet florality that envelopes chocolate and citrus notes.
