Blind Assessment: Richly sweet-savory, multi-layered. Baking chocolate, goji berry, saltwater taffy, bay leaf, freesia-like flowers in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweet structure with gently brisk acidity; full, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Chocolaty and berry-driven finish with undertones of saltwater taffy.
Notes: Produced at Lisa & Leo’s Farm, entirely of the Yellow Bourbon variety of Arabica, and processed by the traditional fermented and washed method. Paradise 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.
The Bottom Line: A Sumatra cup that’s atypical in its processing method (conventionally washed rather than washed and wet-hulled like traditional Sumatras) and almost Kenya-like in its sweet-savory balance.
