Blind Assessment: Deep aroma with soft notes of chocolate, nut and fruit. In the cup, gentle acidity, full body and simple, sweet-toned flavors of coffee fruit, honey and nut. The sweetness lingers in a finish that turns a touch dry and tight in the long.
Notes: Zingerman's Coffee is a specialty roasting company associated with Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor, praised as "one of the top 25 food markets in the world" by Food & Wine magazine. It offers a relatively small but sensitively sourced and roasted menu of specialty coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A relaxed, sweet-toned cup.
