this week we cupped one of the rarest coffees in the world. i am going to have to keep the hints obtuse so that it isn’t a complete lay-up.
aroma: bittersweet chocolate and fresh cut herbs
acidity:medium to light.
flavor profile: slight must, herbaceous, caramel finish
hint: the processing of this coffee is by far the most intensive procedure any coffee ever undergoes – when it is ready for roasting it is pristinely washed – almost as if it was scrubbed by tiny hands. the beans are full and plump – and are best if roasted lightly.the process is the clue – it is the most highly evolved scientifically complex washing process on the globe.
last weeks answer: a delightful coffee from columbia.
