Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Richly and rather tartly bright in aroma and small cup: fresh-cut fir and tangerine-like citrus are rounded by a honey- and chocolate-toned sweetness. Impressively full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is tartly bright but smooth. Retains character in two- to four-parts milk with a dry chocolate dominating.

Notes:

This exceptional coffee was selected as the #29 coffee in the Coffee Review Top 30 Coffees of 2013. Decaffeinated by the “Swiss Water Process” method, which does not involve use of solvents.

Who Should Drink It: Decaf drinkers who value a bright but richly syrupy espresso with solid presence in milk.
