|Review Date:||September 2022|
Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet, nut-toned. Cashew butter, cocoa nib, date, tiger lily, fresh-cut fir in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet structure with balanced acidity; delicate, silky mouthfeel. Creamy cashew notes lead the short finish with tiger lily and date resurfacing in the long.
Notes: Produced by smallholding members of the Union de Productores Las Flores, from trees of the Mundo Novo, Bourbon and Typica varieties of Arabica, and processed by the washed method. Certified organic. Lone Coffee is an Escondido, California-based specialty micro-roaster with an adjacent coffee shop, Kettle Coffee & Tea. Visit www.lonecoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A friendly, accessible Mexico cup, sweetly nutty with gentle fruit and floral underpinnings.
