Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Richly sweet, brightly tart. Dark chocolate, lily-like flowers, blood orange zest, peach, cedar in aroma and small cup. Punchy, syrupy mouthfeel; crisp, cocoa-toned finish with lasting notes of citrus zest. In three-parts milk, the sweet-tartness of the shot carries through, bringing dark chocolate along for the ride.
Notes: A blend of natural-processed Ethiopia Hambela and pulped natural Brazil coffees. Modern Times is a well-loved, exuberantly inventive Point Loma, San Diego brewery that has long specialized in coffee-beer crossovers and overlaps. Visit www.moderntimescoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line : An espresso blend with strong character, particularly expressed in the bittersweet, tart-leaning milk shot, deepened by notes of dark chocolate.
