Blind Assessment: Tropical fruit-toned, juicy and bright. Lychee, mango, almond butter, osmanthus, oak in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with winey acidity; crisp, syrupy mouthfeel. Fruit-driven finish supported by notes of almond and oak.
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 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 complex, multi-layered Kona SL34 cup processed by an experimental method designed to intensify aromas and flavors — juicy, bright, harmonious, richly sweet.
