Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Sweetly roasty, balanced. Cocoa powder, fresh-cut oak, orange zest, roasted almond, lily-like flowers in aroma and small cup. Full though rather heavy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates to cocoa and almond in the roast-toned finish. In three parts milk, the zesty orange dominates, rounded by continued cocoa and nut.

The Bottom Line: An inviting espresso for those who prefer tactfully roasted, sweet-toned darker roasts. Particularly attractive in milk, which rounds the zesty orange and sweetens the roasty chocolate.
