Blind Assessment: Delicately sweet-tart, nut-toned. Hazelnut, lime zest, baking chocolate, date, fresh-cut oak in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with round, gentle acidity; full, velvety mouthfeel. Finish consolidates to notes of hazelnut and lime zest with undertones of baking chocolate.
Notes: Produced by the Santatra Cooperative of Madagascar entirely of the Yellow Bourbon variety of Arabica and processed by the washed method, in which fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
The Bottom Line : An intriguing cup from the little-known coffee-producing region Madagascar: sweet, tart, balanced and inviting.
