Lovely, high-toned aroma: flowers, orange, fresh cedar. In the small cup medium in body, lightly syrupy in mouthfeel, and cleanly and richly lively: The cedar character moves forward and the orange takes on a slight chocolate cast. Rich finish with good flavor persistence. In milk delicate, straightforward, crisply sweet.

Who Should Drink It
Havana suggests this is a Cuban-style espresso, designed to be taken as a straight shot with lots of sugar. I find one of its virtues is a natural sweetness, so perhaps this is Cuba without the sugar.
