Blind Assessment: Gently and sweetly bright, delicately balanced. Milk chocolate and plum-like fruit with hints of vanilla and fresh leather in aroma and cup. Softly tart acidity; silky mouthfeel. Sweet though very slightly drying and astringent in the finish.
Notes: Certified organically grown and Fair Trade certified, meaning this coffee was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Desert Sun’s roastery is located at nearly 7,000 feet above sea level in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. It imports its coffee through its membership in Coop Coffees, a cooperative importer.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy classically delicate light-roasted coffees, complex and lively.
