Blind Assessment:

Multi-layered and expressive. Star jasmine, cherry, maple syrup, cocoa nib, almond in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with lively acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The resonant finish leads with notes of jasmine and almond in the short, with cocoa-toned cherry returning in the long.

Notes:

Santos Coffee is a micro-roaster based in Chia-Yi, Taiwan. Email xp1122992000@hotmail.com for more information.

The Bottom Line: A pretty, floral-toned Ethiopia cup with particularly vibrant acidity and plush mouthfeel.
