Blind Assessment:

Crisply sweet, balanced. Baker’s chocolate, maple syrup, gardenia, cherry, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart in structure with brisk acidity; velvety mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to baker’s chocolate and gardenia with hints of cedar.


Produced entirely from trees of the Caturra variety of Arabica. Espresso Republic, founded in 2010, specializes in sourcing quality coffees and roasting them in small batches for both retail and wholesale customers. Visit www.espressorepublic.com for more information.

The Bottom Line: A sweet-toned, engaging Colombia cup with crisp baker’s chocolate as a throughline.
