Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet, rich-toned. Pear, baking chocolate, magnolia, fresh-cut fir, almond butter in aroma and cup. Deeply sweet structure with gentle acidity; plush, syrupy, yet lively mouthfeel. Cocoa-toned finish with pretty notes of magnolia and fresh-cut fir.
Notes: This coffee tied for the third-highest rating in a tasting of holiday blends for Coffee Review‘s December 2019 tasting report. Comprised of wet-processed, dry-fermented coffees of the Bourbon, Typica and Caturra varieties of Arabica from three different growing areas in Peru: Flor de Selva, Estrella Divina and El Laurel.

The Bottom Line : A sweetly nutty and cocoa-toned cup with an especially buoyant mouthfeel.
