Blind Assessment: Crisply tart, chocolaty. Lime zest, dried apricot, chocolate fudge, agave syrup, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with gentle, round acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The deep finish is richly drying, very chocolaty.
Notes: Doi Pangkhon is an emerging growing district in the Golden Triangle region of northern Thailand. This Arabica coffee from classic cultivars was processed by a particularly meticulous version of the wet or “washed” method, in which skin and fruit flesh are removed from the beans or seeds before they are dried. It was roasted in a style intended for both espresso and non-espresso brewing methods. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company 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 balanced, richly darker-roasted coffee from Thailand’s burgeoning Doi Pangkhon growing region — sweet, chocolaty, and enlivened by notes of citrus zest.
