Blind Assessment: Crisply floral, delicately lively. Complex flowers – lavender, lilac – roasted cacoa nib, tangerine, fresh-cut cedar in aroma and cup. Sweetly brisk acidity; light, silky mouthfeel. Flowers in particular carry into a gentle, resonant finish.
Notes: The coffees in this blend are certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning they were purchased from small-holding farmers at a “fair” or economically sustainable price. Roast House is a small-batch, quality-focused roaster specializing in farm-direct organic- and Fair Trade-certified coffees. Visit roasthousecoffee.com or call 509-995-6500 for more information.
Who Should Drink It : Those who value a finely elegant, gentle, meadowy coffee with outstanding social and environmental credentials.
