It is fair trade and ethically sourced and its our only Forestero. The aroma – very little astringency than quite a number of Forestero I have tasted. It has hints of light biscuit, a little vanilla and of course the rather characteristic and “classic” earthy chocolate aroma. There is also an interesting hint of lightly slightly ripe peach or apricot in the aroma while roasting. The vanilla aroma continues in the bean along with tobacco, humus and peat – all very classic Forestero. There is also some higher notes (alluding again to some Trinatario) of fruit, particularly raisin and that peach/apricot. There is a moderate amount of astringency, but well balanced by the rest of the flavor profile.
