Exceptional clarity & sharp F3 (focused flavor factor). Domori’s minimal processing lines-up eerily straight with a bean whose properties are mostly from lab breeding: Ocumare 67, a highly researched & carefully engineered sub-clone. Possible to virtually taste the genetic filters & fixes. In that vein, Puertofino feels manipulated with an amplified sense of narcissistic self & canned emotional cheerleading making victory almost automatic, even soulless; the same way pneumatic steel coasters part ways with their creaky wooden cousins. Only a few fans should mind.

bursts out Classic Venzy fruit bush but rooted here in balsa wood: orange sunshine streaked in apricot / papaya / sapote / cantaloupe -> gorgeous buttered cashew white-spot hits like a solar flare -> chocolate buttermilk ‘n honey -> light sets under darkening tones of black mulberries, dates, & molasses which quickly vanish into the aft-length of rich grilled toast dipped in peppery Tuscan olive oil
Quality   18 / 20
Leave well-enough alone: Domori’s unbiased settings (low impact processing) lets the genes do the talking & walking, unobstructed by lecithin emulsifiers or vanilla complement. 1st rate.
