Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Nut-toned, chocolaty, richly earthy. Hazelnut, chocolate fudge, fresh-cut oak, fir, molasses, gardenia in aroma and small cup. Crisp, velvety mouthfeel; almondy finish supported by notes of dark chocolate and fresh-cut oak. In three parts milk, richly nut-driven with pleasing hazelnut and chocolate fudge complications.
Notes: A blend of coffees from Guatemala and Indonesia roasted for espresso applications. Chu Bei, based in Shanghai, specializes in the roasting of coffee, cacao, and tea. Visit www.chubei.co for more information.
The Bottom Line: A sweetly nutty blend of washed and wet-hulled coffees roasted for espresso — rich, earth-toned, balanced.
