Rich, round, deep. Baker’s chocolate, fresh-cut cedar, pungent grapefruit, hints of narcissus-like flowers in aroma and cup. Brisk but juicy acidity; delicately lively, satiny mouthfeel. The baker’s chocolate note animates a dry finish.
A blend based on the traditional Mocha-Java formula, combining a particularly distinguished traditionally processed Sumatra – Ulos Batak – in place of the original Java, and a “natural” or dried-in-the-fruit coffee from southern Ethiopia (Sidamo Ardi) that presents an arguably cleaner, more refined alternative to the Yemen Mocha component of the original formula. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot coffees and espressos from Hawaii and other premier coffee growing regions. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
