Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet, gently and cleanly fruit-toned. Dried apricot, baking chocolate, lemon verbena, maple syrup, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with gentle, round acidity; full syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Finish consolidates to notes of apricot and lemon verbena in the short, with baking chocolate resurfacing in the long.
Notes: Certified organic and fair trade. Produced by CENFROCAFE of the Caturra and Catimor varieties of Arabica and processed by the honey method, in which some fruit flesh (“honey”) is allowed to adhere to the beans during drying. The company name Amavida combines the Spanish words for love and life, reflecting Amavida’s multifaceted commitment to fairness and fine coffee.

The Bottom Line: A cleanly fruit-forward honey-processed Peru cup, with the fruit nicely balanced by crisp chocolate and sweet herb notes.
