Blind Assessment: Spice-toned, deeply chocolaty. Dark chocolate, baking spices, cashew butter, lily, molasses in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet with gentle, round acidity; plush, creamy mouthfeel. Quiet, nutty finish supported by notes of baking spices.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 24 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2022. Produced by a small community of coffee growers at Sitio Naguey and processed by the washed method at Kalsada Mill. Mostra Coffee is a women-, minority-, veteran-, and immigrant-owned micro-roaster based in north county San Diego. For more information, visit www.mostracoffee.com.
The Bottom Line: A balanced, rich-toned, darker roasted coffee from smallholding farmers in The Philippines — chocolaty, floral, and driven by notes of baking spices.
