Blind Assessment: Crisply fruit-toned, chocolaty. Cocoa powder, black cherry, almond, cedar, orange zest in aroma and cup. Richly bittersweet structure with brisk acidity; full, velvety mouthfeel. Finish consolidates to notes of cocoa powder, orange zest and cedar.
Notes: Produced by Toi Nguyen of Future Coffee Farm entirely of coffee of the Robusta species. Processed by the carbonic maceration method, which involves fermenting whole coffee fruit inside a sealed container that has been flushed with CO2, then drying the coffee, still in the whole fruit. Paradise prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
The Bottom Line: An exceptionally sweet, complex Canephora (Robusta) cup from Vietnam, processed by carbonic maceration to intensify the fruit character.
