Blind Assessment: Deeply chocolaty, sweetly earthy. Dark chocolate, pipe tobacco, date, lily, gently scorched oak in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with gentle, round acidity; crisp, velvety mouthfeel. The mildly drying finish consolidates to notes of pipe tobacco and lightly scorched oak with undertones of dark chocolate.
Notes: Produced by smallholding members of the COOPACVOD cooperative entirely of the Haitian Blue variety of Arabica, and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Certified USDA organic; shade grown. Cafe Kreyol is a roaster in Manassas, Virginia with the mission of creating sustainable employment by way of specialty coffee.

The Bottom Line: An organic Haiti Blue Mountain cup, deftly darker-roasted, with rich chocolate and sweet tobacco notes. Nice with a splash of whole milk.
