Blind Assessment: Intense, sweetly pungent small cup with dark chocolate, cedar, banana-toned fruit and a hint of ferment that contributes a slight brandyish nuance. Syrupy body, mildly astringent though very sweet finish. Heavily dominates short milk but blooms and balances beautifully at four parts milk to one part coffee, rounding toward a rich, minty dark chocolate.
Notes: Assessed on a La Marzocco professional machine with brewing temperature set at 200F. One-ounce shot achieved approximately 25 seconds after the first drop. Tested in milk by combining a one-ounce shot with two parts and then four parts 2% milk.
