|Roaster Location:||Tainan City, Taiwan|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed.|
|Est. Price:||NT $700/16ounces|
|Review Date:||June 2012|
Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Crisp, round, balanced. Fresh-cut cedar, baker’s chocolate, orange, toasted almond in aroma and small cup. Medium body, very lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Dryish, flavor-saturated finish. At its best in two parts milk, where it complexly expresses sweet chocolate and cedar-toned orange.
Notes: Bacca Café is a Taiwanese family-owned small café that roasts its own coffee and bakes its own pastries with great respect for the quality and provenance of green coffees and bakery ingredients. Call +886-6-580-2009 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Cappuccino drinkers in particular should find this blend attractive, given the elegant way its dry chocolate and zesty orange round and blossom in the milk.
