Blind Assessment:

A luxuriously sweet, full, suavely rounded cup enlivened by nut and spice tones and a tickle of flowers. “Rich, saturated butter,” exclaimed one panelist. Slightly sharp when hot, but as the cup cools the bitter edge swoons into the enveloping sweetness.

Notes:

A luxuriously sweet, full, suavely rounded cup enlivened by nut and spice tones and a tickle of flowers. Los Alpes is one of the Café Volcan Baru group of coffee estates. Grown at impressive elevations ranging from 5,000 to 5,500 feet (1,525 to 1,680 meters). Produced mainly from trees of the old bourbon and typica varieties and processed by the traditional washed method.
