Blind Assessment: High-toned, spice-driven, deeply sweet. Almond nougat, freesia-like flowers, dried apricot, cedar, thyme in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweet-savory structure with gentle acidity; plush, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The finish leads with notes of almond nougat and undertones of rich aromatic wood.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers near the Businde Washing Station entirely of the Red Bourbon variety of Arabica and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Small Eyes Café is a small, family-owned coffee shop in Yilan, Taiwan, specializing in artisanally roasted specialty coffee and homemade desserts.

The Bottom Line: A crisply sweet Burundi cup with spicy floral tones and an invitingly savory thyme-like note.
