Blind Assessment: Chocolaty, floral-toned. Dark chocolate, rhododendron-like flowers, hazelnut butter, date, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with gentle, round acidity; very full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish centers around notes of dark chocolate and rhododendron with hints of cedar.
Notes: Produced by Wilmar Castillo at Vista Al Bosque farm from the Bourbon and Caturra varieties of Arabica and processed by the wet, or washed, method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Oak & Bond is a specialty retail and wholesale coffee roaster based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The company’s name combines “oak,” a reference to its first coffee, a barrel-aged release, and “bond,” referring to the founders’ happy marriage. For more information, visit www.oakandbondcoffee.com.
The Bottom Line: A richly sweet Guatemala cup with a throughline of vanilla-like florals and deep, dark chocolate.
