Blind Assessment: Rich, round, sweet-toned but briskly dry. Cedary chocolate, maple sugar, plum, roasted nut in aroma and cup. Pronounced but balanced acidity; smooth-textured though drying mouthfeel. Flavor carries powerfully into a long, distinctly drying finish.
Notes: Produced entirely from trees of the red and yellow Catuai varieties of Arabica by Orland Paz at La Cuchilla, a farm based in La Union, Honduras at an elevation of 5,000 feet. OQ Coffee is a New Jersey-based small-batch roasting company that emphasizes its commitment to coffee quality and community-building. Visit www.oqcoffee.com for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy briskly dry though full-flavored white wines.
