Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Fir, almond, baker’s chocolate, white peppercorn, molasses in aroma and small cup. Satiny though slightly lean mouthfeel. Almond and chocolate dominate in a drying finish. Three parts milk sweetens the nut and chocolate, though the finish remains dry.
Notes: A.R.C., whose motto is “more than specialty,” rigorously controls three vital elements: sourcing of green coffee, roasting, and, in cafe environments, water quality for brewed coffee. For more information, visit http://www.arc.coffee/en/index.html.
The Bottom Line: Nut and chocolate dominate in this crisp, briskly dry espresso blend.
