|Acidity /Structure :||9|
Blind Assessment: Richly sweet-tart, complex, fruit-toned. Mulberry, cocoa nib, honeysuckle, sandalwood, nougat in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with juicy, vibrant acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The resonant finish consolidates to mulberry and cocoa notes.
Notes: Guji is an admired growing region just southeast of the famous Yirgacheffe region, and, like Yirgacheffe, produces coffee largely from indigenous varieties of Arabica long grown in the area. Processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). 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 berry- and cocoa-toned cup with especially lively acidity. A dried-in-the-fruit or natural-processed coffee without a whisper of ferment, all sweet fruit and rich aromatic wood notes.
