Blind Assessment:

Floral-toned, richly sweet. Wisteria, toffee, lime zest, frankincense, apricot in aroma and cup. Bittersweet structure with confident, citrusy acidity; delicate, silky mouthfeel. The crisp finish consolidates to notes of toffee and lime zest with undertones of frankincense.

Notes:

Produced by Antonio Regalado Diaz at El Huyacan La Palma Farm from trees of the Bourbon, Typica, and Caturra varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method. Big Shoulders Coffee is a Chicago artisan roaster that emphasizes a fresh-roasted, no-nonsense approach to fine coffee. Visit www.bigshoulderscoffee.com or call 3312-846-1883 for more information.

The Bottom Line: An inviting coffee from Peru, characterized by deep florals and balanced by notes of stone fruit and citrus zest.
