Blind Assessment: Intensely sweet-savory. Pineapple, blueberry, ripe tomato, baking chocolate, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Savory-sweet structure with high-toned acidity; crisp, smooth mouthfeel. Sandalwood-framed finish with hints of fruit and chocolate underneath.
Notes: Comprised of three coffees: an Ethiopia natural (dried in the whole fruit), a traditional double-washed Kenya and a very unusual coffee, a Colombia fermented in a specially prepared culture of yeasts, sugars and passionfruit.

The Bottom Line: A lush, umami-toned fruit bomb of a blend that shakes up any notion of an everyday coffee and may particularly appeal to open-minded fans of the latest experimental processing methods.
