Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Rich, deep-toned in the small cup: cedar, dark chocolate, hints of apple-like fruit and almond. Syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate and cedar carry persuasively through into the long finish. Round, authoritative presence in two parts milk; the cedar and dark chocolate persist while the fruit rounds toward peach or apricot.
Notes: A traditional, relatively light-roasted Northern-Italian-style espresso blend. Paradise Roasters prides itself on roasting and shipping coffee only after orders are placed. Its metaphoric mission is to bring some paradisiacal warmth from the coffee-growing south to the cool environs of Minnesota. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
Who Should Drink It : No roasty or acidy sharpness but plenty of weight, complexity and presence make this a versatile espresso that masters milk nicely.
