Crisp, complex, delicate but intense. Cantaloupe and ripe orange, walnut, roasted cacao nib, rye whisky in aroma and cup. Sweetly brisk acidity; smooth, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Rich, deep, flavor-saturated finish, gently drying in the long.
This exceptional coffee was selected as the #30 coffee in the Coffee Review Top 30 Coffees of 2013. Bourbon is one of the oldest and most respected of traditional heirloom varieties of Arabica. This is a dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees. Topéca Coffee is an artisan roaster with three café locations and a roastery in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Visit www.topecacoffee.com or call 918-398-8022 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
A very clean, balanced dried-in-the-fruit profile, the only hint of ferment an elegantly restrained dry whisky note.
