Blind Assessment:

Sweet-toned, richly nutty. Cashew butter, date, baker’s chocolate, magnolia, oak in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with brisk acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The richly drying finish consolidates around notes of cashew and magnolia.

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 friendly, accessible Guatemala cup: crispy sweet with nut and chocolate throughlines.
