Blind Assessment: Crisp, balanced, bright. Red currant, thyme, wild honey, cocoa nib, amber in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart with crisp, lively acidity; viscous, almost creamy mouthfeel. Finish is sweetly herbaceous with hints of wild honey.
Notes: Produced by Luis Alberto at Finca La Bendicion entirely of the rare, big-beaned Yellow Maracaturra variety of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. Paradise prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A Nicaragua cup from trees of the uncommon yellow-fruited Maracaturra variety of Arabica — enlivening and inviting in its complexity.
