|Est. Price:||$21.00/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||September 2021|
Blind Assessment: Bright, juicy, balanced. Pink grapefruit zest, dark chocolate, candy apple, freesia-like flowers, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with lively acidity; silky, viscous mouthfeel. Chocolaty, citrus-toned finish supported by notes of fresh-cut cedar.
Notes: Produced by smallholding members of La Voz que Clama en el Desierto cooperative, from the Typica, Bourbon and Caturra varieties of Arabica, and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed before beans are dried). Nostalgia Coffee Roasters was founded by Taylor Fields in 2018 as a mobile café; it has since added specialty roasting and online sales of select fine coffees.

The Bottom Line: A chocolaty, citrusy-tart cup with spicy floral undertones and vibrant acidity and mouthfeel.
