Blind Assessment: Spice-toned, delicate and deep. Cardamom, black tea, bergamot, honeysuckle, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure with juicy acidity; full, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Flavor-saturated finish leads with cardamom and bergamot, rounding to honeysuckle-toned sandalwood in the long.
Notes: Comprised entirely of beans from the rare Sudan Rume, a presumably very old variety of Arabica originally selected from wild trees growing on the Boma Plateau of Sudan, close to the border with Ethiopia. Produced by Rigoberto Herrera at Granja La Esperanza in Colombia and processed by the wet, or washed, method. Founded in 2013, modcup coffee focuses on fresh roasting and distinctive natural-processed coffees. Visit https://modcup.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: An exciting cup from a rare varietal that, in this incarnation, is richly cocoa-toned and spice-laden, complex and multi-layered.
