Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Roast-rounded, chocolaty, fruit-resonant. Scorched oak, nut-toned chocolate, molasses, dried pineapple, hints of lily in aroma and small cup. Lightish though velvety mouthfeel. The finish consolidates around cocoa and molasses with a hint of smoke. Sweetness and complexity carry through nicely in three parts milk.
Notes: Zenith is a signature espresso blend from Zuco, a Hong Kong-based roaster specializing in refined single-origin coffees and award-winning espresso blends. Visit zucocoffee.com for further information.
The Bottom Line: An attractively accessible and classically oriented espresso, which showcases balanced roastiness with prominent chocolate and quietly complex aromatics.
