Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Fruit-forward, chocolaty, intricately structured. Blood orange, dark chocolate, saffron, lavender in aroma and small cup. Plump, silky mouthfeel; citrus, lavender and chocolate notes carry into a long, rich, expansive finish. The chocolate, flowers and fruit round but resonate harmoniously in three parts milk.

Notes:

This blend of three coffees includes a fully washed Central America (all fruit residue removed from beans before drying), a pulped-natural from South America (only skin removed before drying) and a natural-processed coffee from East Africa (all the fruit remains on the beans during drying). Dragonfly Coffee is a Boulder, Colorado-based micro-roaster that produces high-quality coffees and supports worthy causes.

Who Should Drink It: Those who value a remarkable espresso that reads as an elegantly balanced triangle of fruit, chocolate and flowers.
