Blind Assessment: Deep, sweet, complexly fruit-toned. Musky lily, dark chocolate, strawberry, watermelon, roasted almond in aroma and cup. Round, vibrant acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Fruit and almond carry into a richly drying finish.
Notes: This coffee was produced by Greenwell Farms, one of the oldest coffee farms and mills in Kona, still owned and operated by Tommy Greenwell, a direct descendent of the founders. It was processed by the “natural” method, in which the coffee is dried inside the whole fruit, rather than by the more orthodox “washed” method, in which the soft fruit residue is removed before the beans are dried. The Coffee Academïcs has been a purveyor and roaster of specialty coffee in Hong Kong since 2012. Visit www.the-coffeeacademics.com or call +852-3104-0075 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Those who value crisp sweetness and complex fruit in an unusual dried-in-the-fruit coffee from a celebrated origin.
