Marques de Paiva (Sam's Club)
Organic Medium Roast
|Roaster Location:||Miami, Florida|

Sweet, crisp, simple with walnut and minty dark chocolate notes in the aroma that consolidate as a distinct, pleasing cocoa in the quietly balanced cup. The long, rich, cocoa-toned finish is particularly impressive.
