Blind Assessment: Richly chocolaty, deeply sweet. Dark chocolate, freesia-like flowers, crisp pear, vanilla bean, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with gentle acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. Quiet, chocolaty finish with notes of pear and cedar.
Notes: A blend of washed-process coffees from El Salvador and Peru; 5% of net profits from sales of this coffee goes to support the work of the South Yuba River Citizens League in protecting and restoring the Yuba River. Founded in 2015 by roaster James Parrish, Rhetoric Coffee is roasted at CoRo, Bay Area Co-Roasters (www.corocoffee.com), a collaborative community roasting space in Berkeley, California.

The Bottom Line: A medium-roasted blend that highlights the chocolate and floral notes of coffees from El Salvador and Peru.
