Varietal: Chinese Catimor Score: 93 Cup Notes: A light-medium roast opens up this consistently balanced terroir. Warm butter and pine sap fragrance turns to a milk chocolate aroma. First sip - immediately the savory pepper (typical of Chinese Catimors) opens up, a mellow spice which mingles with the soft orange citrus and then, caramel (no, not salted.) Unlike many catimors, the acidity and "spicyness" play together in this cup, revealing a delicate brown sugar sweetness. Bottom of the cup, room temperature, and the matrix has left a bit of green tea. Flexible, dynamic, complex yet mellow.
