Blind Assessment: Chocolaty, richly sweet. Chocolate fudge, blackberry coulis, sage, singed cedar, magnolia in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with gentle, round acidity; lush, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The crisp finish consolidates to notes of dark chocolate and singed cedar with undertones of magnolia.
Notes: A blend of three washed-process coffees from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras respectively, roasted to medium dark. Kakalove Cafe is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A deftly darker roasted blend intended to honor the Mayan cultures central to the three green coffee origin countries contributing to the blend.
