Blind Assessment: Softly pungent; delicately complex. Honey, roasted cacao nib, vanilla, cherry- and peach-like fruit in aroma and cup. Smooth, poised acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but persists in a round, deep, gently drying finish.
Notes: This blend is a mélange, a blend in which constituent green coffees are brought to distinctly different roast levels or colors. GreenAlives is a Taiwan small-batch roasting company located in the Taishan District of New Taipei City that pursues quality in every act of coffee production from green coffee selection through storage, roasting and educating customers in optimum brewing practice.

Who Should Drink It: A very comprehensive cup: well-structured, crisply sweet, with a wide range of aromatic intrigue.
