Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Balanced, sweetly tart. Dark chocolate, pomegranate, Oolong tea, rose-like flowers, almond in aroma and small cup. Delicate, silky mouthfeel. Clean, sweet finish, with a savory resonance. In three parts milk, chocolate tones re-emerge, along with hints of roasted almond.
Notes: Certified organic. This blend is comprised of three coffees: a wet-processed coffee and a natural-processed coffee, both from the Hambela Estate in Ethiopia, and a wet-hulled coffee from the Ketiara Women's Cooperative in Sumatra. Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro-roaster focusing on socially conscious coffee and high-quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: An appealing espresso blend: deeply sweet, invitingly savory, with a fruit-tartness suggesting pomegranate.
