Blind Assessment: Balanced, lively. Aromatic cedar, apricot, walnut, roasted cacao nib, a hint of cinnamon in aroma and cup. Quiet, roundly tart acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Sweet-toned but crisp finish.
Notes: This coffee is produced entirely from trees of the respected Catuai variety of Arabica and is sourced through a direct relationship with farmers Moises Herrera and Marysabel Caballero. Finca El Puente refers to a portion of the larger farm that produced this coffee, Dulce Nombre de Jesús. Counter Culture is a specialty roaster with an informative and lively website, a commitment to fine coffee, direct relationships with growers, transparency, and youthful, enthusiastic leadership.

Who Should Drink It: Gently tart acidity enlivens a suavely classic cup.
