Blind Assessment: Refined fruit-toned acidity points up flavors of ripe lemon, orange, honey and a toasty chocolate that becomes more pronounced in the finish. Syrupy mouthfeel, bright but balanced overall.
Notes: In a community of over forty-two family farms, Monserrate coffee producers organized several years ago into the Associative Group of Producers of the New Millennium and have been expanding their numbers since. A blend of the top scoring lots from an annual competition that is open to coffee producers in the Monserrate community.
