Evaluated as espresso. Fruit-toned, chocolaty. Black cherry, brandy, dark chocolate, sandalwood, lavender in aroma and small cup. Crisp, silky mouthfeel; spice-toned finish, redolent of sandalwood. A hint of sweet, brandy-like ferment lingers in three parts milk, supported by deep chocolate notes and spicy aromatic wood.
This coffee tied for the third-highest rating in a tasting of natural-processed single-origin espressos for Coffee Review’s August 2018 tasting report. Produced by Rigoberto Herrera at Café Granja La Esperanza entirely from trees of the Colombia variety of Arabica. This is a dry-processed or “natural” coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit www.ptscoffee.com or call 888-678-5282 for more information.
A fruit-forward natural-processed Colombia espresso, rich with chocolate and aromatic wood notes and an intriguing hint of brandy.
