|Roaster Location:||Pu'Er Yunnan Province, China|

Blind Assessment: Delicate, sweet, with spicy undertones. Mangosteen, lilac, candied lemon zest, raw chocolate and sage in aroma and cup. Vibrant, juicy acidity; full, silky mouthfeel. Sweet florals, along with cocoa and lemon zest, saturate the long, resonant finish.
Notes: This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying. AHRIRE is a micro-roaster spun off from the ManLao River project, a non-profit project for alleviating poverty and protecting the environment in the Pu’er region of Yunnan Province. AH-RI-RE or “Tiger” in the Li language is the name of the head roaster, an ethnic minority member who aims in his roasting to “showcase the robust, multi-faceted flavors in nature.”
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a subtle, original, immaculately layered coffee.
