Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet, richly dry. Kumquat, cocoa nib, vanilla, allspice and molasses in aroma and cup. Bittersweet in structure with brisk acidity; full, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The finish simplifies, though resonates pleasantly with both tart and rich elements.
Notes: Produced by Juan Peña of Hacienda La Papaya entirely from trees of the Typica variety of Arabica. This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying.

The Bottom Line: An aromatically bright and rousing Typica cup, high-toned with bittersweet citrus and rich spice notes.
