Medium Roast - Single Origin - Peru
Caramelized Banana l Cedar l Pipe Tobacco
This coffee tied for the third-highest rating in a cupping of 88 coffees from Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador for Coffee Review’s March 2019 tasting report. This is a dry-processed or “natural” coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. This natural-processed Peru has an appealing hint of cordial-like sweet ferment animating a layering of fruit, floral and tobacco notes.
Fruit-forward, crisply sweet. Caramelized banana, hibiscus, cedar, pipe tobacco, rum cordial in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with round, gentle acidity; velvety mouthfeel. The quiet finish leads with banana and rum suggestions in the short, rounding to sweet pipe tobacco in the long.
