Blind Assessment: High-toned, balanced. Meyer lemon zest, cocoa nib, red plum, almond brittle, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with brisk acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The sweetly nut-toned finish is redolent of almond butter with undertones of Meyer lemon zest.
Notes: This coffee tied for the third-highest rating in a cupping of “Cause Coffees” for Coffee Review’s March 2021 report.

Produced by Angela Sevilla of Finca Buena Vista from trees of the Caturra and Catuai varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method.
