Blind Assessment: Rich, deeply sweet-toned. Narcissus, black cherry, cedar, cashew butter, agave syrup in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with gentle, citrusy acidity; smoothly viscous, satiny mouthfeel. The finish resonates with black cherry and narcissus in the short, consolidating to cashew and cedar in the long.
Notes: This coffee tied for the fourth-highest rating in a cupping of coffees from roasters in the northwestern U.S. for Coffee Review’s April 2020 tasting report. Bluebeard Coffee Roasters’ motto is “The Perfect Medium.” The Tacoma, Washington-based company aims at roasting deep enough to develop sweetness and depth, light enough to leave each coffees’ subtleties intact.
