NOTES:
Polished, exuberant notes. Fresh, heavy-bodied yet lively finish (sweetbitter then sweet, lengthy). Raspberry and lemongrass sip with raw sugar addition. Slurps to an additional chocolate touch & slight stiff leather quality. A spot of Earl Grey tea, indubitably.

There is a half-tick of an astringent thing built up toward the cup-bottom. A well-trained bull in a china shop refrained strength sans any noticeable subtlty -- yet somehow not at all ham-fisted. Bold. Quite complex and those complexities are easily seen & ready for their close-ups.

FINAL GRADE: B+
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59

ALSO: Sonofresco manufactures & sells the roasters which roasted these beans, and sells the un-roasted green beans as well.
