Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Deeply rich, sweetly roast-rounded. Dark chocolate, gently scorched cedar, magnolia, black cherry, almond in aroma and small cup. Full, satiny mouthfeel; crisp, resonant finish centered around dark chocolate and black cherry notes, underscored by cedar-like aromatic wood. In three parts milk, the chocolate blooms and and notes of black cherry and magnolia resurface.
Notes: Doi Chaang is a single-estate coffee produced by a northern Thailand hill tribe in the Golden Triangle mountains of Thailand and roasted in Canada. The independent coffee growers are strategic partners with the Canadian company, which returns $0.17 per pound of coffee sold directly back to the farmers.

The Bottom Line: A rich, resonant espresso from Thailand, especially attractive in cappuccino-scaled milk.
