Blind Assessment: Richly fruit-driven, sweetly herbaceous. Lychee, passionfruit, baking chocolate, lemon verbena, agave syrup in aroma and cup. Brightly sweet-tart structure with high-toned acidity; smooth, velvety mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of lemon verbena and agave syrup.
Notes: Produced by Byeong Soo Kim of Don Rafa Farm entirely of the Pache variety of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (beans are dried in the whole fruit). Roaster Yu Chih Hao is co-founder of Fumi Coffee, a roaster in Hsinchu, Taiwan specializing in specialty coffee and homemade desserts.

The Bottom Line: A paradoxically lush and crisp natural-processed Mexico with top notes of tropical fruit and undertones of sweet herb.
