Blind Assessment: Complex, high-toned, resiny. Malt, amber, pomelo, baking chocolate, date in aroma and cup. Brightly bittersweet structure with juicy acidity; plush, satiny mouthfeel. Perfumed finish with leading notes of amber and pomelo.
Notes: Grown by Miranda Farms, entirely of the Red Catuai variety of Arabica, and processed by Miguel Meza by a proprietary method that utilizes a yeast strain associated with the style of beer known as Indian Pale Ale or IPA during fermentation. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. Paradise prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
The Bottom Line: An experimentally processed Red Catuai grown on Hawai’i Island and processed with beer yeast, promoting a uniquely brisk and complex cup.
