“Sweety” Espresso Blend
|Roaster Location:||Hong Kong, China|
|Coffee Origin:||Panama; Ethiopia|
|Est. Price:||HKD $250/227 grams|

Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Sweet-toned, deeply rich, chocolaty. Vanilla paste, dark chocolate, narcissus, pink grapefruit zest, black cherry in aroma and cup. Plush, syrupy mouthfeel; resonant, flavor-saturated finish. In three parts milk, rich chocolate tones intensify, along with intimations of vanilla paste and black cherry in the short finish and floral-toned citrus zest in the long.
Notes: An espresso blend comprised of coffees from Panama and Ethiopia. A.R.C., whose motto is “more than specialty,” rigorously controls three vital elements: sourcing of green coffee, roasting, and, in cafe environments, water quality for brewed coffee.

The Bottom Line: A radiant espresso blend that shines equally in the straight shot and in milk, alive with notes of rich dark chocolate and black cherry.
