This outstanding coffee was selected as the No. 2 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2016.
96 pts Aroma: 9 Body: 9 Flavor: 10 Aftertaste: 9 With Milk: 9
Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Delicate, exotic, profoundly floral. Star jasmine, tamarind, saffron, bittersweet orange blossom, dark chocolate in aroma and small cup. Sumptuous, levitating mouthfeel. Bittersweet, citrus-driven short finish; dark chocolate enveloped in jasmine in the resonant long, with waves of saffron notes best described as umami-floral. Maintains its nuance in three parts milk, where dark chocolate and saffron round and deepen.
The Bottom Line: Opulent, invitingly complex, forthright as both straight shot and in cappuccino-scaled milk.
