Blind Assessment: Deep-toned aroma with great range and complexity: flowers, orange, cocoa, butter, cedar. In the cup richly acidy, medium in body, silky in mouthfeel, with continued lavender-like floral notes, crisp cocoa, dry berry. Clean, tartly juicy finish with flower notes present to the last fading.
Notes: R Miguel is a new line of elite coffees designed by R. Miguel Meza, buyer and roastmaster at Paradise Roasters, one of the country's leading small-batch high-end roasting companies. Romantic blend names with no reference to coffee tradition or geography, reticent labeling, obviously rare blend components and a matte black metal can all signal R Miguel's aspiration to create a new paradigm for specialty coffee.

Who Should Drink It: A deeply original coffee, allusive but unique.
