Blind Assessment: Aromatically other-worldly, resoundingly juicy. Caramelized pineapple, aromatic orchid, pistachio, raw chocolate, oolong tea in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory-tart structure with gently bright acidity; deep, syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor-laden finish with especially impressive fruit and florals.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 1 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2021. Produced by the Garrido family of Mama Cata farm entirely of the very rare Mokkita variety of Arabica, and processed by a particularly meticulous version of the dried-in-the-fruit natural method. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. Paradise 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 opulent rendition of the rare Mokkita variety of Arabica, both sophisticated and a bit wild, with layer upon layer of tropical fruit notes ensconced in florals and chocolate — an extraordinary sensory journey.
