Blind Assessment: Dark chocolate and lavender-like flowers dominate, complicated by unusual sweet spicy/herbal notes: agave syrup perhaps, or nutmeg. Crisp, delicate acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The complex aromatics simplify in an otherwise pleasantly balanced finish.
Notes: A blend of darker roasted Sumatra Lintong and a medium-roasted Mexico. Café Excellence is a roaster/retailer located in Audubon, Pennsylvania owned by the Valerio family, whose history in coffee stretches back to 1958. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Delicate but genuinely exotic profile. Blends of dramatically darker and lighter roasted coffees are hard to pull off; this one succeeds.
