Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Deeply rich, intricately aromatic. Sandalwood, tangerine zest, baker’s chocolate, ripe plum, wisteria in aroma and small cup. Delicate, silky mouthfeel; floral-toned, zesty, slightly drying finish. Softens and blooms with vast, flavor-saturated elegance in three parts milk: chocolate, plum, flowers, more.
Notes: In addition to his retail roasting operation, Aroma Roast Coffees, Simon Hsieh also operates Soaring Phoenix Trading, a business focused on purpose-built commercial espresso blends and high quality single-origin coffees.

The Bottom Line : Pleasingly crisp and complex as a straight shot, but particularly impressive in cappuccino-scaled milk, where the shot blossoms vibrantly without losing complexity.
