Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Deep dark chocolate and hints of fruit in the aroma. In the small cup the fruit becomes richer and distinct, showing cherry-like and floral complications that carry into a softly nuanced finish. Sweet and balanced in two parts milk, with sustained hints of fruit, butter and toast.
Notes: A prize winner in an annual competition that is open to coffee producers in the Monserrate community. This one-bag lot was awarded sixth place by the judges of the competition. In a community of over forty-two family farms, Monserrate coffee producers organized several years ago into the Associative Group of Producers of the New Millennium and have been expanding their numbers since. Coava is a Portland based coffee roaster that aims to provide quality coffee and the knowledge needed to properly brew that coffee.
