Blind Assessment: Cocoa-toned, crisply sweet. Cocoa powder, hazelnut butter, pear, cedar, agave syrup in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with brisk acidity; velvety mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of hazelnut and pear with undertones of cocoa powder.
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 wet, or washed, method.

The Bottom Line: A balanced, lively Colombia cup from a cooperative of 900 smallholding farmers in Nariño, Colombia: richly sweet, chocolaty, and nut-toned.
