Blind Assessment: Richly sweet-tart, floral-toned. Pomegranate, wisteria, maple syrup, pink grapefruit zest, cocoa nib in aroma and cup. Tart-leaning structure with juicy, buoyant acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. Sweetly tart in the short finish with pomegranate and pink grapefruit; cocoa nib and wisteria resurface in the long.
Notes: Produced by Max Ariel Palacios Villatoro of La Providencia farm, entirely of the rare, huge-beaned Maragogype variety of Arabica. Processed by the washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying).

The Bottom Line : A striking cup from this rare variety: sweet, tart, rich, deep, and floral through and through.
