Blind Assessment: Resonant, big-bodied, aromatically complex espresso. Dark chocolate, aromatic wood, and a lush, brandy-toned fruit in both aroma and small cup. The flavor softens in two parts milk, with the chocolate taking on a minty sweetness, but still maintains grown-up power and complexity.
Notes: This version of the ancient Mocha-Java blend is intended to be brewed as espresso. With roots in New Zealand, Te Aro Roasted is a Toronto-based coffee company that emphasizes its "fresh air roasted" coffee, a technology that utilizes a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.
