Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Sweet, richly nut-toned. Almond brittle, freesia, dried apple, cedar, lemon zest in aroma and small cup. Crisp, satiny mouthfeel; gently drying, wood-framed finish. In three parts milk, nut tones are amplified, supported by a hint of freesia-like flowers.
Notes: A blend of coffees from Guatemala and Costa Rica roasted for espresso applications. Kasasagi is a Taiwan-based company that specializes in roasting “Japanese-style” coffees. Both companies are based in Taipei. Visit https://www.facebook.com/Kasasagicoffee/ for more information.
The Bottom Line: A deeply sweet, nutty espresso blend redolent of almond brittle supported, both in the straight shot and in milk, by spicy floral notes.
