Blind Assessment:

Cherry-toned chocolate and caramel notes in the aroma. In the cup the cherry sensation deepens to a sustained and rich apricot-like fruit. The sweetness carries into the finish, outlasting a slight touch of astringency.

Notes:

This lighter-roasted, all-organically-grown version of the ancient Mocha-Java blend combines a traditionally processed Sumatra in place of the original Java and replaces the Yemen Mocha with a similar ?natural? or dried-in-the-fruit coffee from southern Ethiopia. PT’s is a quality-oriented wholesale/retail specialty roaster with a wide and refined selection of coffee blends and origins. The PT’s motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit www.ptscoffee.com or call 888-678-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Complex fruit character in an all-organically-grown version of the Mocha-Java formula.
