Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Bright and complex in both aroma and small cup: cedary lemon, distinct floral tones and a cocoaish chocolate. Smooth though rather lean mouthfeel. Sweetens but maintains character in two parts milk: lemon curd and chocolate, with a particularly long and flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. True Beans is an artisan small-batch roaster located in the southern California city of Long Beach that emphasizes social responsibility and sells only organic and sustainable coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those tuned to brightly lemony, aromatically complex but lean-bodied espressos.
