Blind Assessment:

Delicately sweet and spice-toned. Mulling spices, almond, narcissus-like flowers and caramel in aroma and cup. Sweet, gentle acidity; satiny mouthfeel. Long, richly drying, spice-toned finish.

This blend is composed of a wet-processed or “washed” coffee from small-holding farmers in West Java, Indonesia, and a wet-processed coffee from Papua New Guinea. Located in Everett, Washington, north of Seattle, Velton’s Coffee is a quality-focused small-batch wholesale roaster. Visit www.veltonscoffee.com or call 206-250-6130 for more information.
