Blind Assessment: Richly sweet-savory, complex, layered. Dark chocolate, lilac, candycap mushroom, cedar, black cherry in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with bright, juicy acidity; very full, creamy mouthfeel. The resonant finish consolidates to notes of cocoa-toned lilac and black cherry.
Notes: Produced by the Stille family entirely of the big-beaned Pacamara variety of Arabica, and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Monarch Coffee is an award-winning coffee farm and specialty roaster of 100% estate-grown Kona coffee on the Big Island of Hawai’i. Visit www.monarchcoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A nuanced Kona Pacamara cup with deep-toned stone fruit, dark chocolate and sweet floral notes and an umami undercurrent suggesting candycap mushroom.
