Blind Assessment:

Richly fruit-toned, chocolaty. Dried raspberry, dark chocolate, sandalwood, almond, freesia-like flowers in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart in structure with round, gentle acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Fruit- and chocolate-centered in the finish as well, with pretty freesia notes.


Produced by Graciano Cruz of the Typica and Caturra varieties of Arabica and processed by the dry or natural method. Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A heady coffee with clean, confident fruit notes throughout, supported by deep chocolate and spice-toned florals.
