Blind Assessment: Complex aromatic profile - spice notes read as cinnamon and cardamom, ripe stone-fruit sweetness and suggestions of chocolate. In the cup a syrupy mouthfeel supports an intense fruit character: honey-like Casaba melon, plum, nectarine. Cinnamon makes a return appearance in the smooth, caramelly finish.
Notes: Produced by the award-winning Elida Estate, this is a dry- or "natural-" processed coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit is removed, as is the case with the wet-processed or "washed" coffees more typical of Panama and Central America. Roasted at PT's Coffee, where the motto is "without the love, it's just coffee." Visit www.ptscoffee.com or call 888-678-5282 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Intense flavor-saturated nose, cup and finish.
