|Review Date:||February 2022|
Blind Assessment: Richly sweet, chocolaty. Baking chocolate, date, agave syrup, almond butter, magnolia in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with gentle, round acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The crisply chocolaty finish is supported by notes of almond and magnolia.
Notes: A blend of coffees from Guatemala and Ethiopia, both washed-process (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Oak & Bond is a specialty retail and wholesale coffee roaster based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The company’s name combines “oak,” a reference to its first coffee, a barrel-aged release, and “bond,” referring to the founders’ happy marriage. For more information, visit www.oakandbondcoffee.com.
The Bottom Line: A balanced, vibrant, chocolaty and floral-toned Ethiopia-Guatemala blend.
