Blind Assessment: Rich-toned, deeply sweet. Milk chocolate, orange blossom, cedar, black tea, almond in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with quiet, gentle acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The resonant finish leads with notes of orange blossom in the short, cedar in the long, with chocolate throughout.
Notes: Produced by David Lopez of Finca Los Amigos. Orange peel was added to the tank during the ferment step of fruit removal. Lone Coffee is an Escondido, California-based specialty micro-roaster with an adjacent coffee shop, Kettle Coffee & Tea. Visit www.lonecoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A richly sweet, almost dessert-like Honduras coffee, fermented experimentally with orange peel.
