Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Bright, balanced, deep, complex. Tamarind, dark chocolate, jasmine, sandalwood, pink grapefruit zest in aroma and small cup. Viscous, syrupy mouthfeel; long, flavor-saturated finish. Three parts milk levels out the high notes while foregrounding fudge-like chocolate and spicy florals, all with undertones of sandalwood.
Notes: An espresso blend comprised of washed-process coffees from Panama, Ethiopia and Kenya. NINETYs Roastery is a Hong Kong-based coffee shop specializing in Australian style coffee and hospitality. Visit https://www.ninetys.com.hk/ for more information.
The Bottom Line: A multi-layered, richly complex espresso blend with sweet-tart fruit and profound chocolate expressed against a backdrop of resiny aromatic wood suggestions.
