Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Sweetly nut-toned, chocolaty, a bit smoky. Hazelnut, dark chocolate, scorched mesquite, raisin, gardenia in aroma and small cup. Satiny-smooth mouthfeel; bittersweet, smoky finish. In three parts milk, chocolate and gardenia notes are amplified and wood and nut tones recede to the backdrop.
Notes: A blend of coffees from Peru, Colombia, Guatemala, Ecuador, Ethiopia and Brazil. Creation Food Co. is a food service company with a specialty coffee division. It operates one of the few large-scale coffee production facilities in Taiwan. Visit www.creation.com.tw or call 0800-020-368 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A roast-prominent, chocolaty, sweetly nutty espresso blend with deep, subtle smoke tones throughout.
