Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Deeply sweet, richly tart. Lilac, cocoa powder, watermelon candy, grapefruit zest, cedar in aroma and small cup. Crisp, velvety mouthfeel; resonant, long finish that opens with watermelon and concludes with pink grapefruit zest, with cocoa and lilac ranged between. In three parts milk, nicely balanced cocoa and floral tones.


An espresso blend comprised of a washed-process Ethiopia Kayon Mountain; a natural-processed Ethiopia Banko; and a washed-process Colombia Bella Vista. Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro-roaster focusing on socially conscious coffee and high-quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A compelling espresso blend with engaging sweet-tartness, rich aromatic wood notes, and delicately sweet floral tones redolent of lilac.
