The tribe looking to wash their mouths out with throat-searing acids after shining their piercing studs with nail polish may consider this 'dispassionate'. None of the customary blaring volatiles here; just round clean fruit permeates, rather than frontally assaults, the senses.
Appearance   4.2 / 5
very current packaging in & out (black lined cardboard - nice touch, & mylar inner wrapper)
Color: warm brown
Surface: soft plate
Temper: low, light-absorbing sheen (like a lecithin-free chocolate)
Snap: hushed anti-snap
Aroma   7.4 / 10
very even, no real high or low notes: nuts, library leather, light fruit, pink rose petal, & sugar
Mouthfeel   13.2 / 15
Texture: yields smooth w/ soft gummy-bear fruit granules
Melt: remarkably even
Flavor   45.3 / 50
transparent Milk Choc (no vanilla lowers the caramel roll) -> mellow nut (tell-tale Nacional) -> gentle passion fruit -> mounting acidity met by toffee tones (backcross of the nut/Milk Choc)... citrus highs & great chocolate substrate trading off each other -> until trace lime clears it
Quality   18.6 / 20
Highly blended flavor (very few hallmarks of this bean’s dynamics). Well-crafted without usual covers often employed to hide poor craftsmanship behind: over sugaring, over roasting, too much soy, etc. Instead, expert control & balance from clean roast, ferment, conch, & pairing.
