Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Richly spice-toned, deeply floral. Honeysuckle, black cherry, baking spices, dark chocolate, amber in aroma and small cup. Plush, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel; finely balanced, flavor-saturated finish. The milk shot amplifies floral tones suggesting honeysuckle with undertones of black cherry and warming spices.
Notes: A blend of washed and natural-processed Ethiopia coffees imported by Catalyst Trade and a honey-processed Dominican Republic imported by Cafe Kreyol. Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro roaster focusing on socially conscious, high-quality coffee. Visit redroostercoffee.com or call 540-745-7338 for more information.
The Bottom Line: An unusual blend of three coffees from two origins (Ethiopia and the Dominican Republic), each processed by a different method — washed, natural and honey — netting an impressively complex, multilayered espresso.
