Evaluated as espresso. Pungent and sweet in the small cup: brandy-toned dark chocolate, fresh-cut fir, cherryish fruit, a hint of flowers at the top. Lean though smooth mouthfeel; rich, fruit-toned finish. Two parts milk soften and diffuse the fir and brandyish chocolate notes without obscuring them.
This fall version of Bird Rock’s North Bird Espresso blend combines directly traded small-lot coffees from Ethiopia and Guatemala with Fair Trade and organic-certified Sumatra.

Who Should Drink It
Unusual and complex flavor in a smooth though rather lean-bodied espresso.
