Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Balanced, deeply and richly sweet. Blood orange zest, hazelnut butter, narcissus, sandalwood, caramel in aroma and small cup. Crisp, velvety mouthfeel. Sweetly tart in the nut-toned short finish; lightly resonant in the citrusy long. Juicy, balanced in three parts milk; floral notes deepen and nut and caramel notes round to chocolate.
Notes: Big Shoulders Coffee is a Chicago artisan roaster that emphasizes a fresh-roasted, no-nonsense approach to fine coffee. Visit www.bigshoulderscoffee.com or call 312-888-3042 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A very pretty, balanced espresso blend that runs through all the notes: sweet-tart, chocolaty, nutty, floral.
