Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Sweetly bright; zesty. Grapefruit, cedar, baker’s chocolate, candied pecan, orange blossom in aroma and small cup. Delicate, satiny mouthfeel; citrus and chocolate carry into a richly tart finish. Sweetly zesty and vivacious in three parts milk, with a rounding and softening chocolate influence.
Notes: This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying. Creation Food is a food service company with a specialty coffee division. It operates one of the few large-scale coffee production facilities in Taiwan.

The Bottom Line: A bright and zesty espresso in the latest style, but with enough rounding chocolate, sweetness and balance to keep it accessible.
