Complex aroma: distinct strawberry and table grape notes; hints of nut and cocoa. In the cup well-integrated acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel, and extraordinary flavor: wine-like and grapy but fresh; think nouveau Beaujolais, supported by ripe strawberry and cocoa. Long, sweet, cleanly grape- and strawberry-toned finish. Only a very, very slight salty unevenness in the cups discouraged an even higher rating for this striking coffee.
Special Prep, in this case, indicates that this is a dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit is removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees. Certified organically grown. PT's is a quality-oriented wholesale/retail specialty roaster with a wide and refined selection of coffee blends and origins. The PT's motto is "without the love, it's just coffee." Visit www.ptscoffee.com or call 888-678-5282 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
Anyone curious about the tremendous potential of the new dried-in-the-fruit coffee types. And despite the unusual preparation and very light roast, this is an immediately pleasing, accessible cup.
