Blind Assessment: Deep, complex, aromatically enticing. Red currant, almond brittle, hop flowers, pink grapefruit zest, molasses in aroma and cup. Richly bittersweet, balanced structure with elegant, bright acidity; very syrupy, viscous mouthfeel. Resonant, long, flavor-laden finish with appealing complexity.
Notes: Produced by the Meyer Family of Nglia Estate entirely of the SL28 variety of Arabica and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. 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 Tanzania produced from trees of the SL28 variety so closely associated with Kenya, and reminiscent of the best Kenyas with its nectar-like sweetness, deep complexity, and a surprising and disarming levity.
