Blind Assessment: Delicate, richly sweet. Lilac, roasted cacao nib, vanilla bean, tart quince, aromatic frankincense in aroma and cup. Roundly sweet acidity; lush, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The gentle finish is quietly flavor-saturated, leading with fruit and floral tones in the short, cocoa in the long.
Notes: Produced by Percy Pintado from trees of the Red Caturra, Yellow Caturra and Bourbon varieties of Arabica. This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying. Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro-roaster focusing on socially conscious coffee and high-quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: For those who enjoy the virtues of decidedly light-roasted coffees, this Peru offers a delicately floral cup with high-toned cacao notes throughout.
