Blind Assessment: Soft, round, quietly vibrant. Cashew, red plum, tea rose, baking chocolate, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with crisply bright acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of baking chocolate and cedar.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 27 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2021. Produced by smallholding members of COOPACVOD, led by coop member Mariane Merisier, from trees of the Blue Mountain, Typica and Bourbon varieties of Arabica, and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried).

The Bottom Line: A pleasingly crisp, sweetly stone fruit- and nut-toned organic Haiti cup with an inspiring story and a chocolate throughline.
