Evaluated as espresso. Deeply chocolaty, richly floral, sweetly tart. Chocolate fudge, wisteria, black cherry, toffee, cedar in aroma and small cup. Creamy-smooth mouthfeel; long, flavor-laden finish. In cappuccino format, complex, nuanced and satiating.
This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 14 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2023. Produced by smallholding farmers, entirely of the Bourbon variety of Arabica, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and pulp removed before drying). In addition to his retail roasting operation, Aroma Roast Coffees, Simon Hsieh also operates Soaring Phoenix Trading, a business focused on purpose-built commercial espresso blends and high-quality single-origin coffees. Customers can also visit the new showroom, Chateau Andy, in Taipei City. Visit www.facebook.com/4ArtsZeroDefectCoffees or call 886-0983-749876 for more information.
A single-origin Rwanda, roasted for espresso, that hits all the deep notes — chocolate, fudge, lush florals — and gets levity from tart fruit, both in the straight shot and in milk.
