Evaluated as espresso. High-toned, sweetly tart; Bing cherry, dark chocolate, tangerine zest, honeysuckle, a hint of fine pipe tobacco in aroma and small cup. Full, syrupy mouthfeel; earthy-sweet finish. In cappuccino-scaled milk, dark chocolate is amplified, as are deep florals, while tart fruit notes round.
This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 28 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2019. This coffee also tied for the highest rating in a tasting of “classic” espresso blends for Coffee Review’s June 2019 tasting report. A blend of coffees from Ethiopia, Guatemala, Papua New Guinea, and Sumatra, all conventionally wet-processed except for the Sumatra, which is washed and wet-hulled.

A masterful blend of coffees from four different coffee-producing countries that nets a vibrant, engaging shot and a rich, decadent cappuccino.
