Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Sweet, pungent but balanced. Buttery dark chocolate, candied blood orange, apricot, deep-toned narcissus-like flowers. Full, fudgy mouthfeel; chocolate and a hint of flowers carry into a richly drying finish. Blooms nicely in three parts milk, which sweetens and softens the chocolate without dampening the fine fruit and floral complication.
Notes: Produced by the Aguilera family from trees of the Villa Sarchi variety of Arabica. 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: Should make a particularly appealing and accessible cappuccino. As a straight shot may come across as a bit too tart for some but just right for those who enjoy the new American style of espresso.
