Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Balanced, richly sweet. Baker’s chocolate, almond, molasses, narcissus, black cherry in aroma and small cup. Satiny body; resonant finish centers around baker’s chocolate and almond. In three parts milk, chocolate notes are amplified, and black cherry and sweet florals resurface.

Notes:

A dry- or “natural”-processed Thai coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. Bluekoff is a Thai company involved in all aspects of coffee, from milling and roasting to coffee wholesale and retail and related equipment and training services. Bluekoff produces more than 1,200 tons of green coffee and 1,000 tons of roasted coffee per year. Visit www.bluekoff.com or call +66-81-751-1217 for more information.

The Bottom Line: An accessible, cleanly fruit-toned natural-processed espresso blend.
