Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Richly chocolaty, sweetly tart. Dark chocolate, pomegranate, narcissus, lemon verbena, cedar in aroma and small cup. Crisp, satiny mouthfeel; chocolaty finish with sweet herb undertones. In three parts milk, chocolate notes are further amplified, supported by cedar and pomegranate tones.
Notes: Produced at El Durazno Farm (owned by Rabanales Estate) and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). De Clieu Coffee is a Taiwan-based roaster whose mission it is to explore extraordinary coffees. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/declieucoffeetaipei.
The Bottom Line: A solid single-origin Guatemala espresso, balanced and bright. Particularly chocolaty in cappuccino-scaled milk.
