Ripe, balanced cup. Cocoaish chocolate, lemon, peach, a hint of fir in aroma and cup. Crisply delicate, rather juicy acidity; silky but lean mouthfeel. The dominant cocoa note carries into a slightly drying finish.
This lot was produced from trees of the respected Yellow Catuai variety of Arabica, locally known as “Nanze.” A Nanze microlot placed first in the 2011 Santa Barbara Regional Green Coffee Competition.
