Blind Assessment: Aromatically tropical, deeply floral, mysteriously complex. Plumeria, amber, passion fruit, Concord grape, dark chocolate in aroma and cup. Deep-toned, sweetly savory structure with winy acidity; decadently plush mouthfeel. The finish goes on and on.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 2 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2020. Produced by Jim Chestnut and Edna Arakawa of Second Alarm Farm from trees of the Caturra and Typica varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method with the addition of wine yeasts. 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: A shockingly coherent, wildly various experience of coffee, a delightful roller coaster that hits all the sensory notes.
