Blind Assessment: Deeply spice-toned, richly layered. Black currant, clove, dark chocolate, tangerine zest, cedar in aroma and cup. Very sweet with winey acidity; creamy-smooth mouthfeel. The long, chocolaty finish is supported by notes of black currant and clove.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers entirely of the Ja'adi variety of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A deeply aromatic, richly fruit- and chocolate-driven, spice-framed Yemen cup, nuanced and complex.
