Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Bright, chocolaty, floral-toned. Grapefruit, dark chocolate, hazelnut butter, lavender, fresh-cut cedar in aroma and small cup. Lively, full, velvety mouthfeel; tart, aromatic wood-framed finish. Dark chocolate notes are enlivened in three parts milk, with intimations of lavender-like flowers throughout.
Notes: A blend of two Las Lajas Micromill coffees from Costa Rica, a black honey-processed and a natural-processed. 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 dried-in-the-fruit Central America espresso, particularly attractive in milk.
