Blind Assessment: High-toned, juicy-bright. Pineapple, cocoa nib, lemon verbena, myrrh, narcissus in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with bold, balanced acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Fruit- and cocoa-toned finish supported by narcissus-like floral notes.
Notes: Produced at Finca Milan entirely of the Castillo variety of Arabica and processed by an experimental method in which passion fruit and pineapple are added to the tank during the fermentation stage of the wet or washed method. Lina Premium Coffee is a Bogota-based specialty coffee roaster that works with and supports Colombian farms and farmers. Visit www.linapremiumcoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: The unconventional addition of fruit to the tank during a long ferment stage contributes to a vibrantly nuanced cup.
