Blind Assessment: Sweetly tart, juicy-rich. Pie cherry, dark chocolate, orange zest, maple syrup, hazelnut in aroma and cup. Tart-leaning structure with bold acidity; velvety mouthfeel. The finish consolidates around dark chocolate and orange zest with undertones of hazelnut.
Notes: Produced by David Lopez of Finca Los Amigos entirely of the Catuaí variety of Arabica and processed by the natural method (beans are dried in the whole fruit). Modern Times is a well-loved, exuberantly inventive Point Loma, San Diego brewery that has long specialized in coffee-beer crossovers and overlaps.

The Bottom Line: An unabashedly tart natural-process Honduras cup: clean, crisp, sweet and chocolaty.
