Blind Assessment: Soft, deep, pungent. Dark chocolate, hazelnut, apricot/plum, a hint of heady night-blooming flowers in aroma and cup. Rich, gently drying acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Hints of chocolate, hazelnut and apricot/plum all carry into a quietly rich finish.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown. Although the words “Fair Trade” appear as well on the label of the attractive 12-ounce valve-topped can, the trade-marked seal of Fair Trade USA does not.
