Evaluated as espresso. Rich, balanced, tart. Sweet dark chocolate and deep, almost savory floral tones balanced by tart berry in aroma and small cup. Smooth, lightly creamy mouthfeel. A buttery chocolate dominates in the finish and carries with pungent authority into two parts milk.
This sample consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading. Roasted by The Coffee Academics, an irreverent sibling of Hong Kong’s popular homegrown coffee brand Caffè HABITU. The Academics blend represents the humility of an academician and his pursuit of lifelong learning. Visit www.the-academics.com for more information.
Who Should Drink It
