Blind Assessment: Rich-toned, chocolaty. Chocolate fudge, gently scorched cedar, date, gardenia, molasses in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with gentle, rounded acidity; full, creamy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to chocolate fudge and scorched cedar with undertones of gardenia.
Notes: This coffee tied for the fourth-highest rating in a cupping of coffees submitted by North American roasters in business for two or fewer years for Coffee Review’s October 2019 tasting report. Certified organic. Produced by Braulio Barazorda Borda and Valentin Champi Paullo of the Huadquiña Cooperative entirely of the Typica variety of Arabica and processed by the traditional wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). SkyTop Coffee is a USDA certified-organic specialty coffee roaster based in Cazenovia, New York. For more information, visit skytopcoffee.com.
The Bottom Line: A gently roasty cup redolent of chocolate and deep, spice-toned florals.
