Blind Assessment: High-toned, simple, classic aroma: orange, sweet tomato, hints of cedar and milk chocolate. In the cup a rich, roundly sweet-toned acidity dominates, with continued orange and milk chocolate notes that grow more distinct as the cup cools and the acidity softens. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Long, tartly sweet finish.
Notes: Barefoot Coffee Roasters is an award-winning and widely recognized small-batch roasting company that describes itself as "a happy little cafe and roastery in the heart of Silicon Valley." Visit www.barefootcoffeeroasters.com for more information.
Who Should Drink It : A big, brightly sweet breakfast cup.
