Blind Assessment: Delicate but complexly opulent coffee: distinctly pineapple-like fruit, flowers, aromatic wood, hints of pipe tobacco and dark chocolate in both aroma and cup. Crisp, sweet-toned acidity, lean but silky mouthfeel, long, sweet, subtly flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: This coffee was dried in the fruit, an unusual procedure for a Panama coffee. From trees of the Typica and Catuai varieties of Arabica. 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: Those who enjoy a gentle yet subtly exotic cup.
