Blind Assessment: Luminous, clear, confident, lively. Passion fruit, cocoa nib, lilac, almond butter, lemon drop in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with elegantly balanced, intense acidity; viscous, syrupy mouthfeel. Resonant, flavor-saturated finish that carries all the aroma and flavor notes of the cup well into the long.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 3 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2020. Most likely produced from trees of indigenous landrace varieties of Arabica unique to Ethiopia, and processed by the natural method. Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A uniquely structured naturally processed coffee that delivers sweet-tart, fruit-centered richness, juicy-bright acidity, vibrantly viscous mouthfeel. An intricately layered roller coaster of sensory pleasures.
