Blind Assessment: Spice-toned, exceptionally sweet. Clove, cinnamon, green apple, cocoa nib, magnolia in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet structure with lively acidity; very full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to spice-toned cocoa nib with a hint of magnolia.
Notes: Produced at Sigri Estate entirely of the Typica variety of Arabica, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading.

The Bottom Line: A warming, spice-driven PNG cup complicated by tart fruit and rich flowers; high-toned and balanced.
