Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Richly sweet, chocolate-toned. Chocolate fudge, magnolia, almond brittle, tangerine zest, cedar in aroma and small cup. Crisp, satiny mouthfeel; wood-framed, floral-toned finish. In three parts milk, notes of chocolate fudge resonate and linger, along with sweet magnolia-like flowers and hints of cedar.

Notes:

This is not an artificially flavored coffee. The blend name, Signature Hazelnut Dark Chocolate, refers to natural aroma and flavor notes that the blend aims to evoke. Creation Food Co. is a food service company with a specialty coffee division. It operates one of the few large-scale coffee production facilities in Taiwan.

The Bottom Line: A lively espresso blend: chocolaty and floral-toned, especially in milk.
