Blind Assessment: Deep-toned, complex, fruit-forward. Dried mulberry, jasmine, sandalwood, nougat, lime zest in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with high-toned, fruity acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Resonant, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Produced by Hussien Nasser, Mohammed Massaud and Khalid Abdullah of the Dwairi and Typica varieties of Arabica and dried in the whole fruit, as are all Yemen coffees. Exported by Al-Hamdani Mokha. 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 : A lush, juicy expression of the classic Yemen profile: cleanly fruit-toned, a bit spicy, richly sweet, strikingly and subtly nuanced.
