Blind Assessment: Sharply and richly pungent. Scorched cedar, rosemary-like herb, hidey leather, with hints of floral top notes. Bittersweet, backgrounded acidity; very lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor almost resolves into chocolate in a sweet but heavily astringent finish.
Notes: This coffee is a blend of coffees of the Robusta species and the Excelsa variety of the Liberica species. Faustino Coffee Company is an Ontario, California based importer and distributer of coffees from the company’s estates in the Philippines. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Aficionado adventurers curious about this very unusual blend of coffee species, although the impact of dry-processing (drying in the fruit) and a darkish roast may obscure any clear view of the sensory impact of species.
