Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet, tropical. Pineapple, lychee, baking chocolate, jasmine, lemon verbena in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart with very lively, phosphoric acidity; silky-smooth mouthfeel. The finish is fruit-driven with jasmine undertones.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers from trees of the Typica, Caturra and Catuai varieties of Arabica and fermented in the whole fruit with wine yeasts, then dried, still in the whole fruit. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
The Bottom Line: An experimentally processed coffee from the Big Island’s Ka’u region, tropical in its suggestions, dessert-like in its sweetness.
