Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Raspberry jam, juniper, dark chocolate, candied tangerine zest, tea rose in aroma and small cup. Lively, syrupy body; flavor-saturated, resonant finish. In cappuccino-scaled milk, notes of raspberry, chocolate, spicy florals, and sweet-toned citrus zest harmonize with balanced complexity.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 13 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2017. A seasonal espresso blend comprised of Colombia Adolfo Isoto, Colombia La Guamera, Ethiopia Telamo and Kenya AA Nyeri Kiruga coffees. Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro-roaster focusing on socially conscious coffee and high-quality coffee.

The Bottom Line : A tour-de-force espresso composed of a fruit-driven, spice-toned blend of Colombia, Ethiopia and Kenya coffees: richly bittersweet, with deeply expressed fruit and florals.
