Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. A complex small cup layered with notes of maple syrup, fir, toasted nut and dried fruit, apricot perhaps. Medium-bodied, but with deep, sustained flavor that carries sweetly into the finish. Flavor becomes even more nuanced in two parts milk: richly sweet caramel supports pungent fruit and aromatic wood notes.
Notes: From the San Jose-La Lima farm in Jinotega, one of the better-known coffee-growing regions of Nicaragua.
