Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Sweet-toned, balanced. Black cherry, fir, hazelnut, baker’s chocolate, gardenia in aroma and small cup. Full, creamy body; gentle, chocolaty finish. Dark chocolate notes are amplified in three parts milk, with notes of black cherry and hazelnut underneath.

Notes:

A blend of coffees produced by Finca El General in Acatenango, Guatemala 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.
