Blind Assessment: Concentrated, rich-toned, deep. Dried plum, sandalwood, baking chocolate, star jasmine, lemon thyme in aroma and cup. Deeply sweet structure with bright acidity; very full, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Finish consolidates to notes of dried plum and sandalwood with hints of baking chocolate.
Notes: Produced at Mashtal ul Burhani farm from trees of the Tuffahi, Dawairi, Jaadi and various other local varieties of Arabica and processed by the natural method (beans are dried in the whole fruit). Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company 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 impressive Yemen cup, deep-toned and cleanly fruit-centered with bright, juicy acidity and inviting spice notes throughout.
