Blind Assessment: Balanced, complete coffee with a straightforward aromatic complex persisting from aroma through finish: peach, citrus, flowers, complimented by a delicately sweet chocolate. Rich acidity, syrupy body.
Notes: Grown on the award winning farm El Socorro y Anexos, this lot is made up entirely of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Barefoot Coffee Roasters itself is an award-winning small-batch roasting company that claims to be "Making sweet coffee love… in the heart of Silicon Valley."
