Balanced, richly sweet, tart and savory. Fine musk, dried hibiscus flowers, perique (fermented) pipe tobacco, candy cap mushroom, apricot in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart-savory structure with punchy acidity; lightly creamy, viscous mouthfeel. The rich-toned finish centers around apricot and umami-redolent notes akin to candy cap mushroom.
This coffee tied for the third-highest rating in a tasting of holiday coffees for Coffee Review‘s December 2018 tasting report. It is organic and certified fair trade, the latter meaning it was purchased from farmers at a “fair” or economically sustainable price. A blend comprised of four coffees: a natural-processed Ethiopia WORKA, a washed Ethiopia Banko, a washed Rwanda Coopac, and a washed Colombia Tolima. Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro-roaster focusing on socially conscious and high-quality coffee. Visit redroostercoffee.com or call 540-745-7338 for more information.
