Blind Assessment: Gently bright, delicately sweet. Baker’s chocolate, sweet lemon, plum, freesia-like flowers in aroma and cup. Soft, quietly lively acidity; satiny mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a balanced, sweet-toned finish.
Notes: The Homestead Blend currently combines a wet-processed or “washed” coffee from a small mill in the celebrated Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia with an unusual small-holder wet-processed coffee from West Java, Indonesia. Tony’s Coffee has been roasting in Bellingham, Washington since 1971. Visit www.tonyscoffee.com or call 800-448-8804 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Fine balance in a quiet, graceful blend with unusually sweet citrus.
