Blind Assessment: Sweet and complex aromatically, combining round floral tones with stone fruit, toast and caramel. In the small cup medium-bodied and bright. The flowers persist, softening slightly, and the fruit turns toward crushed strawberry, carrying into a rich finish. The flavor profile is sustained in two parts milk, with a rounder, sweeter, chocolate-tinged version of flowers and fruit.
Notes: Certified organic, this is the "Winter 2010" version of a seasonally changing espresso blend, this time combining coffees from Africa and Indonesia.
