Blind Assessment: Sweet, deep, slightly savory, complex. Turbinado sugar, violet and lavender, pineapple, peach, musk in aroma and cup. Rich, round, resonant acidity. Syrupy, lively mouthfeel. The sweetness turns chocolaty and pineapple and lavender notes in particular saturate a rich finish.
Notes: Produced mainly from trees of the admired, Bourbon-derived SL28 and SL34 varieties of Arabica. Giakanja mill is affiliated with the Giakanja Farmers Cooperative.
