Blind Assessment: Sweetly tart, deeply savory. Baking spices, caramel, goat milk yogurt, baking chocolate, violet in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure with pert acidity; viscous, creamy mouthfeel. A delicate finish consolidates to baking spices with goat milk undertones.
Notes: Produced at Black Rock Farms entirely of the Typica variety of Arabica and processed by a fermented natural method using a species of lactic acid-producing yeast. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company 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 coffee fermented using a yeast strain aimed at developing lactic acid rather than fruit alcohol notes, producing a cup that is impressively complete yet unorthodox, ideal for the coffee adventurer or a palate looking for a recharge.
