Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Deep-toned, sweetly savory. Dried fig, hop flowers, lemon verbena, dark chocolate, clove in aroma and small cup. Satiny-smooth mouthfeel; chocolaty finish with clove undertones. In cappuccino-scaled milk, spiced-toned chocolate notes are elevated, while fig and herb notes support.
Notes: Produced by Finca El General in Acatenango, Guatemala entirely of the Pacamara variety of Arabica, and processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: An unusual single-origin espresso, a big-beaned Pacamara from Guatemala that displays rich spice tones and other savory impulses within the context of deep sweetness; think an Ibarra chocolate dessert.
