Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet, fruit-forward. Raspberry coulis, cocoa nib, freesia-like flowers, cedar, caramelized walnut in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with delicate acidity; very full, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The finish leads with notes of caramelized walnut and cocoa nib with undertones of freesia.
Notes: Produced at Blue Hole Estate entirely of the Catuaí variety of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). David's Nose is a specialty coffee roaster based in Taipei, Taiwan whose founder studied agronomy and has a deep interest in crop quality. For more information, visit www.dnose.com.tw.
The Bottom Line: Spicy florals, crisply sweet nut tones, and distinct berry notes dominate in this inviting natural-processed Honduras cup.
