Blind Assessment: Balanced, deeply sweet, subtly spice-toned. Pear, almond, baker’s chocolate, wisteria, maple syrup in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart-savory structure with soft acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. A gently brisk finish quietly sustains all of the aroma and flavor notes from the cup.
Notes: This coffee tied for the second-highest rating in a cupping of coffees from Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador for Coffee Review’s March 2019 tasting report. This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying. Wild Goose emphasizes its relationship-driven green coffee sourcing, and for every pound of coffee sold it purchases ten pounds of food for a local food bank, with over 750,000 pounds donated to date.

The Bottom Line: A beautifully balanced Peru cup: fruit, flowers and nuts in crisply sweet harmony.
