Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Deeply sweet, chocolaty. Dark chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla, dried cherry, cedar in aroma and small cup. Buoyant, velvety mouthfeel; long, resonant cocoa and nut-toned finish. Chocolate notes take center stage in cappuccino-scaled milk, supported by dried cherry and vanilla.

Notes:

A blend of coffees from Colombia, Rwanda and El Salvador. Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee. Visit www.kakalovecafe.com.tw or email kahiyuho@gmail.com for more information.

The Bottom Line: A balanced, expressive espresso blend with dessert-like aroma and flavor notes.
