Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Richly chocolaty and floral-toned. Chocolate fudge, gardenia, almond, cedar, molasses in aroma and small cup. Crisp, satiny mouthfeel; finish consolidates to notes of chocolate fudge and gardenia with cedar undertones. In three parts milk, chocolate and gardenia notes are further amplified with hints of cedar and almond, as well.
Notes: A blend of washed-process coffees from Central America, South America and Africa roasted for espresso applications.

The Bottom Line: A bold, chocolaty espresso with a floral throughline that is especially rich-toned in cappucino-scaled milk.
