Cupping Notes
This lot has a lightly fruited quality to it and welcoming honeyed sweetness in both aromatics and flavor profile. The dry grounds have a raspberry and cocoa scent, with a bit of honey and raw nut. The wet aroma is ultra-sweet, heaps of brown sugar, a note of vanilla, and a waft of grape juice on the break. This is one sweet cup through and through, with a finish that is so clean and without taint or off notes. Sweetness is often obfuscated by heat, but even at practically brew temp, this coffee delivers crystalized sweetness of raw honey and shimmering acidity. As it cools, these aspects build and are rounded out by flavors of raw cashew, green grape, and a delicate note of sweet citrus. It's a fairly straight-forward cup, but the elements that are present are refined to a point of easy detection and definition. This is also a fairly bodied Costa, and when roasted to Full City and beyond, makes a great "classic" profiled SO espresso.

Roast Recommendations
Espresso - Full City or darker is recommended.
Brewed Coffee - City through Full City as Full City+ takes away from the potential dimension in a brewed coffee.
