Blind Assessment:

Round aroma of tangerine, toast and flowers. Bright yet balanced acidity, smooth body and citrus tones that sweeten toward lemonade and chocolate. Long, sweet finish, with mild cocoa notes.

Notes:

Available in a 16-ounce valve bag at $12.45. A blend of coffees from Asia, Africa and the Americas. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast.
