Blind Assessment: Sweetly nut- and caramel-toned. Cashew butter, caramel, agave syrup, plum, fresh-cut oak in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with brisk acidity; very full, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Finish consolidates to notes of cashew and caramel.
Notes: Produced by members of the Asociación de Cafetaleros de Santa Cruz from trees of the Typica, Caturra and Bourbon varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins.
