Blind Assessment: Very sweet, orangey and chocolate-toned. Ripe mandarin orange, dark chocolate, hazelnut, freesia-like flowers, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with tart, citrusy acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. Sweetly citrusy, wood-framed finish with undertones of dark chocolate.
Notes: Produced by Felipe Arcila of Jardines del Eden, entirely of the Castillo variety of Arabica, and processed by an experimental method in which the beans, with skins removed but still encased in fruit flesh, are fermented with wine yeasts and orange pulp before drying. Giv Coffee is dedicated to three goals: to provide quality coffee, to provide a fair price to farmers, and to give back to those in need. Giv Coffee donates $1 of every retail bag of coffee it sells.

The Bottom Line: An experimentally processed fruit-macerated Colombia cup with a vivid citrus throughline — also chocolaty and nut-toned with hints of spicy florals.
