Blind Assessment: Vibrantly sweet-savory. Red currant, toffee, hop flowers, marjoram, lemon verbena in aroma and cup. Richly bittersweet, balanced structure with lively acidity; plush, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Gentle finish with notes of red currant and marjoram.
Notes: Produced at Ngila Estate from trees of the Bourbon and Kent varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Big Shoulders Coffee is a Chicago artisan roaster that emphasizes a fresh-roasted, no-nonsense approach to fine coffee. Visit www.bigshoulderscoffee.com or call 312-846-1439 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A rich-toned, complex, nuanced Tanzania cup with a particularly plush, syrupy mouthfeel.
