Blind Assessment: Fresh, integrated, deep-toned. Caramelized mango, ginger blossom, cashew butter, lemon-thyme, palo santo in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with gently bright acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The resonant, satisfying finish leads with notes of mango and ginger blossom with undertones of palo santo.
Notes: Produced at Uluwehi Coffee Farm entirely of the Bourbon-related SL34 variety of Arabica and processed by a proprietary method, called “champagne natural,” in which fermentation using a wine yeast strain is applied to the whole fruit before it is dried. 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: A uniquely composed, experimentally processed cup that’s well worth a detour to enjoy a brilliant tweak on the familiar Kona profile, with especially vibrant acidity.
