Blind Assessment: Chocolaty, sweetly nut-toned. Baking chocolate, hazelnut butter, Bing cherry, cedar, maple syrup in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with brisk acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The resonant finish leads with notes of baking chocolate and hazelnut (think Nutella) with undertones of cherry.
Notes: A select microlot, produced by smallholding members of the Suyusama social cooperative, from trees of the Colombia, Caturra and Castillo varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed, method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried).

The Bottom Line: Equal parts chocolate- and fruit-driven, with crisp baking chocolate and sweet stone fruit as throughlines.
