Sweet but crisply dry in mouthfeel; complex. Tart berry, roasted cocoa nib, sweet coconut and night flowers, hints of mint and fir in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart, wine-toned acidity; lightly syrupy texture. Very sweet but gently drying in the finish.
This sample, one of Victrola’s Reserve series of rare super-micro-lot coffees, consists entirely of peaberries, caracalillo in Latin American Spanish, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading. Honduras, until recently a largely overlooked Central American coffee origin, has been producing increasing volumes of refined coffee over the past few years. Victrola is a small-batch, hands-on roaster with a passionate commitment to quality and distinctiveness. Visit www.victrolacoffee.com or call 206-624-1725 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
Tart, dry berry juxtaposed with floral sweetness makes this an attractive variation for those who enjoy the great SL28 Kenya profiles.
