Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Richly floral-toned, elegant, balanced. Watermelon, pink grapefruit zest, Nutella, sandalwood, tiger lily in aroma and small cup. Syrupy-smooth mouthfeel; long, flavor-saturated finish. Sweet cocoa and hazelnut tones are elevated in three parts milk, with continuing floral resonance.

Notes:

A blend of three coffees: two Ethiopias, one from the Yirgacheffe growing region and one from the Sidamo, and a Guatemala from the Huehuetenango region. GK provides quality specialty coffee to consumers and retailers. For more information, email gkcoffer2015@gmail.com or call +886-919-314-513.

The Bottom Line: A deftly blended espresso as good as a straight shot as in milk: rich, high-toned, exuberant with fruit and flowers.
