Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned aroma: toast, fruit and caramel. In the cup classically big, bright acidity, silky mouthfeel and juicy, complex fruit: apricot, peach, black currant, tart citrus with hints of flowers and honey. The fruit in particular lingers in a flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Produced by small-holding growers in the Ruvuma growing region, near Lake Nyasa in southwestern Tanzania. One in a series of small-lot Roasterie Reserve coffees. The Roasterie is a longtime leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.
