Blind Assessment:

Crisply sweet-savory. Toffee, black cherry, rosewood, walnut, violet-like flowers in aroma and cup. Richly bittersweet structure with juicy acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The crisp finish consolidates to notes of black cherry and walnut.

Notes:

Produced by Porfirio Castellanos entirely of the Pacas variety of Arabica. 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. Coava is a Portland-based coffee roaster, now with a San Diego location as well, that aims to provide quality coffee and education regarding the preparation of good coffee.

The Bottom Line: A rich, savory-leaning Pacas cup with tremendous depth of aroma and flavor.
