Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Deep-toned, chocolaty and rich. Dark chocolate, hazelnut, gently scorched cedar, raisin, gardenia-like flowers in aroma and small cup. Full, creamy mouthfeel; chocolaty, wood-framed finish. Milk amplifies both dark chocolate and hazelnut notes in a richly sweet presentation.
Notes: Produced at Bosques de Saman Farm from trees of the Caturra and Castillo varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method. Lina Premium Coffee is a Bogota-based specialty coffee roaster that works with and supports Colombian farms and farmers. Visit www.linapremiumcoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: An affordably priced single-origin Colombia espresso, deftly roasted to bring out dark chocolate and nut tones, both particularly attractive in the milk shot.
