Blind Assessment: Deep, chocolaty, fruit-forward. Black cherry, almond nougat, frankincense, fresh-cut oak, honey in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with bright, winy acidity; viscous, creamy mouthfeel. Focused fruit-forward finish with undertones of honey.
Notes: Produced by Luis Alberto entirely of the Kenya-originated SL28 variety of Arabica and processed by the natural method. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company 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: Interesting for several reasons: variety (Kenya’s famous SL28), origin (Nicaragua) and processing method (dried-in-the-fruit or natural) — a trifecta of compelling reasons to experience this innovative coffee.
