Blind Assessment: Hints of caramel, stone fruit and baking spice in the aroma. A pungent but balanced cup, with a deep fresh-cut fir character complicated by spice-toned chocolate and stone fruit that grow more prominent as the cup cools. Rich dark chocolate persists in the finish.
Notes: "A" is the second-highest grade of Papua New Guinea coffee based on bean size and number of visual defects; the highest grade, seldom offered, is "AA." Part of the Mystic Monk’s “Coffee of the Month” program, this sample is limited in availability. Mystic Monk Coffee is a small-batch roaster associated with a Carmelite monastery located in the Rocky Mountains of northern Wyoming. Roastmaster Brother Java emphasizes his artisan approach to roasting and his commitment to quality.
Who Should Drink It: Offers depth, balance and considerable low-key nuance.
