Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Sweetly nutty with a slight salty edge. Nut (roasted almond, peanut-butter), dark chocolate, scorched oak, prune, pungent lily in aroma and small cup. Mouthfeel is lightly satiny. The short finish consolidates around bittersweet nut, with a slight drying edge in the long. In three parts milk, distinctly nutty and bittersweet with hints of cocoa.

Notes:

This blend consists of an El Salvador and a dry-processed or natural Arabica from the Cerrado region of Brazil. Sensory House is a roastery, espresso bar, equipment distributor and training lab based in the Kowloon City District of Hong Kong. Sensory House develops quality espresso blends and sources and roasts high-end single-origin coffees. Visit www.sensoryhouse.coffee to learn more.

The Bottom Line: A moderately dark-roasted espresso blend that stays impressively true to the nut theme announced by its name.
