Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Floral-toned, richly sweet. Honeysuckle, cashew, oak, fig newton, pink peppercorn, dark chocolate in aroma and small cup. Crisp, satiny mouthfeel; resonant, floral-toned finish with a hint of spice notes. Three parts milk foregrounds sweet nut and dark chocolate, backed up by sweet spice notes suggesting pink peppercorn.
Notes: Produced at Finca El General entirely of the Pache 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: A rich-toned, floral-driven espresso, particularly expressive in cappuccino-scaled milk.
