|Review Date:||September 2019|
Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Smoky, chocolate-toned. Cocoa, salted raisin, crimson lily, smoke in aroma and small cup. Heavyish though velvety mouthfeel; sweetly salty, smoky finish with a chocolate throughline. In three-parts milk, bittersweet cocoa and salted fruit resonate clearly.
Notes: A blend of wash-processed coffees from Central America. HWC Roasters is a specialty coffee roaster based in Taichung, Taiwan. For more information, visit www.hwcroasters.com.
The Bottom Line : For those who prefer a darker-roasted espresso, this unapologetically smoke-forward and chocolaty cup offers an accessible profile.
