Blind Assessment:

Crisply sweet-tart, high-toned. Mandarin orange, candied violet, hazelnut, baker’s chocolate, fresh-cut fir in aroma and cup. Tart-leaning structure with brisk acidity; satiny mouthfeel. The quiet finish centered around notes of baker’s chocolate, almond and orange.

Notes:

Produced on Finca Quejina by the Nicolas Ramirez family from trees of the Bourbon, Caturra and Pache varieties of Arabica. 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. Revel Coffee is a micro-roaster located in Billings, Montana. Its motto: “Quality is paramount – a difference you can revel in.” Visit www.revelcoffee.com or call 406-534-9621 for more information.

The Bottom Line: A citrus-driven, quite bright Guatemala cup with a pretty floral note akin to candied violet.
