Blind Assessment: Complex, bracing, bittersweet in structure. Crisp lavender-like flowers, dark chocolate, tart berry, softened by a sweet caramel in aroma and cup. Brisk, floral-toned acidity; silky to lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Lavender and dark chocolate carry into a rich but drying finish.
Notes: A washed or wet-processed coffee, meaning both skin and fruit flesh were removed from the beans before drying, a practice which generally intensifies acidity and clarity of flavor. Temple Coffee is a quality-focused retail and wholesale roaster in Sacramento, California who has been voted Best Coffee House since 2005 by the Sacramento News & Review. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy heavily hopped ales and other pleasingly bitter-edged beverages.
