Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Sweetly tart, floral-toned. Honeysuckle, oak, dried apricot, dark chocolate, thyme in aroma and small cup. Delicately syrupy body; gently drying, floral-driven finish in the short and sweetly herb-toned in the long. In three parts milk, chocolate, florals and fruit all take center stage, and thyme-like herb notes gently follow.
Notes: An espresso blend comprised of coffees from Africa and the Asia-Pacific. A.R.C., whose motto is “more than specialty,” rigorously controls three vital elements: sourcing of green coffee, roasting, and, in cafe environments, water quality for brewed coffee.

The Bottom Line : A floral-driven straight shot, amplified with notes of stone fruit and chocolate in cappuccino-scaled milk.
