Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Sweetly and roundly brisk. Blood orange, baking chocolate, walnut, cedar, a hint of sweet, wisteria-like flowers in aroma and small cup. Velvety mouthfeel; chocolate and the floral hint come forward in a balanced finish. In three parts milk, a cedary chocolate pleasingly dominates.
Notes: Vascobelo is an Antwerp, Belgium-based coffee roaster with cafes and kiosks in both Belgium and the Netherlands that also retails its coffees on the website www.vascobelo.be.
The Bottom Line : A quietly balanced espresso: crisp, sweet, driven by dry chocolate and bittersweet orange.
