The Archimedes features lots of fruity sweetness, packing a berry and peach punch with a thick, velvet body and balanced citric acidity. This year's dry-processed Ethiopian and a recent crop washed Central lot adds other elements, however: cocoa, smoked hardwood, and cherry. This is a balanced espresso that hints at the blueberry bombs of yesteryear and weighs heavily on the palette. It is delicious with and without milk.
