Blind Assessment: A slightly rough, but profoundly sweet and quite chocolaty cup. Brown sugar, dark chocolate, hints of lily, green grape and peach in aroma and cup. Round, backgrounded acidity; lightly but distinctly syrupy mouthfeel. Sweet, long, chocolate-toned finish.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Produced by Campesinos Ecológicos de la Sierra Madre de Chiapas (CESMACH), a coop located within the buffer zone of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, one of the world’s most diverse forest reserves, the integrity of which CESMACH supports through shade-growing and other sustainable practices. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot coffees and espressos from Hawaii and other premier coffee growing regions. 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.
Who Should Drink It : Those who prefer richness, resonance and chocolate to purity and brightness in a lighter roasted coffee. Good environmental and socio-economic credentials.
