Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Complex, savory-sweet. Sweet herb (lavender and sage), dark chocolate, rich molasses, allspice and cinnamon in aroma and more pronounced in the small cup. Creamy mouthfeel. Crisp chocolate and lavender persist in a rich finish. Complexly expressed dry chocolate in three parts milk, nuanced by malt and floral herb suggestions.
Notes: Certified organically grown and processed by the traditional Sumatra “wet-hulled” method, a process of fruit removal and drying that promotes coffees with richly fruity and earthy tendencies. 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
Who Should Drink It : Sumatra-lovers who particularly enjoy the savory, spicy tendencies of their favorite coffee type. Nicely interpreted here as a single-origin espresso.
