Blind Assessment: Intensely aromatic, richly fruit-driven. Dark chocolate, fermented pomegranate juice, gardenia, sassafras, Meyer lemon zest in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure with richly bittersweet, juicy acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Chocolaty and floral in the finish with a deliberate hint of ferment.
Notes: Produced by the Lamastus family of Elida Estate entirely from the Catuaí variety of Arabica and processed by the anaerobic slow-dry (ASD) natural method (whole fruit is fermented with limited oxygen and dried for over 60 days). Now based in Henderson, Nevada, Dragonfly Coffee was named 2019 Micro-Roaster of the Year by Roast magazine. Visit www.dragonflycoffeeroasters.com or call 303-579-2154 for more information.
The Bottom Line: An experimentally processed Catuaí that stays on the rich, pleasing side of fermenty — fruit-toned and chocolaty at its core.
