Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Balanced, crisp, smooth. Raisin, almond, dark chocolate, cantaloupe-like fruit in aroma and small cup. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate in particular lingers in a pleasantly dry finish. Superb in two parts milk: classic balance with complexly expressed dark chocolate complemented by raisin, apricot, cedar.
Notes: Unlike most Brazil coffees, this one was processed by the washed or wet method, meaning the soft fruit residue was completely removed before the beans were dried.
Who Should Drink It: It’s hard to imagine a much better candidate for a classic cappuccino or espresso macchiato, but makes a smoothly authoritative straight shot as well.(coffeerevew.com)
