Blind Assessment: Flowers, honey, tangerine, fir in aroma and cup. Brisk, zesty acidity; light but very silky mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates toward chocolate in a sweet, gently drying finish.
Notes: Rainforest Alliance Certified, meaning this coffee was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Processed by the classic wet method: fruit is removed before drying using traditional ferment-and-wash methods and the beans are sun-dried. Produced on Finca Huixoc from trees of the Bourbon, Caturra, Catuai and Mundo Nuevo varieties of Arabica.
