Looks & sounds just as a high-percentage São Tomé should. But this typically difficult diva needs the master’s hand to bring out the best. Don’t look here for that hand. She’s a wet cat.
Appearance   4.6 / 5
Color: raw umber; ebony overtones
Surface: waxy plate
Temper: marble floor…. hallmark of São Tomé
Snap: sharp, high heels; flint cleave
Aroma   6.6 / 10
strong red fruit -> vanilla -> mild kippers -> wet oak mulch & cat
Mouthfeel   11.7 / 15
Texture: thick though a little fine granular like talc
Melt: takes your time
Flavor   37.9 / 50
cool dirt start -> simple vanilla chocolate -> small red highlight -> coffee builds to burnt olives w/ brutal tannins desiccating any / all chocolate flavor -> tin & aluminum finish
Quality   15.2 / 20
Over-fermentation fails to tame this assertive bean, turning olive notes into fish tones & earth notes into wet cat with desiccation at the end.
