The pear is mightier than the marshmallow
This coffee came to us out of a sense of frustration. We had cupped well over a hundred coffees and then Melanie says she "reached out to Falcon because they used to be a competitor of mine when I worked as an importer and they always had coffees that rivalled mine in quality".
When first cupping this coffee, it stood out initially stood out from an aromatics perspective. It had a pink, fun quality to it, without being fermenty or artificial in any way. It was just a clean, sweet, and fun. Like a nice fruity treat.
It's really interesting that this coffee is washed process, as it has the aromatic and flavor intensity normally reserved for naturals. It definitely benefits from the cleanliness that a washed process provides, while also providing an memorable experience in an elegant way.
