This coffee starts out with sweet and savory smells. Evokes a cold winter’s day late afternoon lunch of beef barley soup and cherry jam on pumpernickel toast. There are waves of flavor, including fruit and dark, bittersweet tones, with a slight black peppery edge. Reads like a Rhône. Very nice mouthfeel, almost velvety, and the finish introduces burnt raisin, with slight nuttiness, and a hint of currants. There is acidity present, but not center stage – quite dry on the finish. A superb coffee.
