Blind Assessment: Vibrant, gently fruit-toned. Dried apricot, lemon drop, freesia-like flowers, oak, honey in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with brisk acidity; full, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The resonant finish consolidates to notes of lemon balm and honey, supported by fresh-cut oak.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers in the region of Ixhuatlan del Cafe entirely of the ancient Typica variety of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (beans are dried in the whole fruit). Ming’s Coffee Playroom is a small specialty coffee roaster in New Taipei City, Taiwan. For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/coffeeplayroom.
The Bottom Line: A clean, lively natural-processed Typica grown in the Veracruz region of Mexico — bright, deep, elegantly fruit-forward.
