|Est. Price:||$17.25/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||December 2014|
Blind Assessment: Deep, sweet, pungent. Dark chocolate, lily-like flowers, pecan, a hint of ripe orange in aroma and cup. Crisp, gently brisk acidity; soft, plush mouthfeel. Chocolate, orangy citrus, a suggestion of lily carry into a mildly drying finish.
Notes: One of Victrola’s Reserve series of rare super-microlot offerings, produced from trees of the Pacas and Bourbon varieties of Arabica. Finca Las Brisas produced only six bags of coffee this harvest, all of which were purchased by Victrola. Honduras, until recently a largely overlooked Central American coffee origin, has been producing increasing volumes of fine coffee over the past several 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: Those who enjoy a gently pungent, resonant Central America cup with pleasing mouthfeel and distinct chocolate.
