NOTES ON GREEN COFFEE
This coffee is raw with a sieve 16 and the evaluation of defects ranges from very low to zero.
If toasted as an espresso (agtron 50-55, Italian) the resulting crema is full-bodied and tending to dark, but not greyish as in the case of some robusta coffees. The aroma brings us the marked cocoa sensations that distinguish these coffees. On the nose we also perceive toasted sensations. The taste of the coffee is decidedly full-bodied and a marked sweetness is perceived on the tip of the tongue. Bitter and acidity are balanced, a darker roasting would probably excessively exalt the bitterness and cancel out finer aromatic sensations.
If toasted by filter and brewing (agtron 65-70, full city) the sensation of cocoa is more delicate and it is possible to perceive herbaceous and vanilla notes. The coffee is sweeter.
