Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Deep, richly sweet. Chocolate fudge, mango, wisteria, vanilla in aroma and small cup. Full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is crisply dry; flavor consolidates as a cedar-toned chocolate. Richly chocolaty in three-parts milk with continued hints of fruit and flowers.
Notes: This espresso is a complex four-bean blend that incorporates a wet-processed Kochere Yirgacheffe Ethiopia, a wet-processed Kenya AA, a dried-in-the-fruit or “natural” Sidamo Ethiopia, and a wet-hulled Sumatra Mandheling G1.
