Tuesday morning… Yep, Tuesday. Here we are, tired but totally excited to cup the new Mexican arrival, Mexican Oaxaca Pluma – Tres Oros. We’ll also be cupping the FTO Nicaraguan Rio Coco. Below are the notes.

Mexican Oaxaca Pluma – Tres Oros: Aroma: Cinnamon, chocolates, woody. Flavor: Citrus, subtle creamy nutty/chocolate notes, hints of caramel, light floral. Finish: Crisp, effervescent, spices, clean taste.

FTO Nicaraguan Rio Coco: Aroma: Green woods and fruits, caramelized sugars. Flavors: Light citrus notes, subtle cocoa notes, hints of hickory-like woody flavor, faint floral. Finish: syrupy mouth-feel, soft, warm.
