Blind Assessment: Sweetly spice-toned, gently fermenty. Dark chocolate, fennel, raspberry jam, whiskey barrel, lemon balm in aroma and cup. Brightly sweet with juicy acidity; plush, creamy mouthfeel. The resonant finish centers around notes of whiskey-toned raspberry and oak.
Notes: A pre-roast blend of two coffees, a wet-hulled Sumatra and a natural-processed Ethiopia. Old Soul is a roastery, bakery and crafter of artisanal goods dedicated to quality in every form. Visit www.oldsoulco.com or call 916-443-7685 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A classic Moka Java blend that evokes the depth of aroma and flavor of a high-end whiskey: fruity, earthy, decadent.
