Blind Assessment:

Deep, quiet, gently chocolaty. Hazelnut, dark chocolate, fresh-cut oak, a hint of orangy citrus in aroma and cup. Simple, functional acidity; very lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate in particular carries into a dry but sweet-toned finish.

Notes:

Certified organically grown. Allegro Coffee, a subsidiary of Whole Foods Market, offers one of the country’s largest selections of single-origin coffees.
