Alto Huayabamba, Peru 75% sweetened with panela

 

Aroma: cocoa mulch, dried cherries, slight grassiness – maybe from panela, maybe a little peach, slight muddiness.

 

Flavor: A mild, muddled flavor. Raisin, some red fruit tanginess.  Deep flavor, a dark enough roast to bring out some dark toast notes but nicely done so as not to lose the lighter red fruit notes. Slight starchiness like the outside of a marshmallow. Slightly grainy texture.

 

Recommendation: Recommended with reservations. A more rustic flavor experience. The panela confuses the flavor, though if you are fond of that particular flavor you may like it.

 

Batch info: Batch no. 8; Best before November 1, 2020
