Amaro, You're So Lovely
In that moment before the coffee actually reaches my lips I'm engulfed in the scent of fresh flowers;. It offers a sense memory of blooming flowers in the midst of this harsh winter. The floral notes I pick up vary from lavender to jasmine and rose. Once I get a taste, it's a very smooth and sweet cup, silky even. The spring floral scent is not overwhelming in the taste, it turns juicy, crisp and refreshing. Then, I get a warm feeling of cookies from this coffee; fresh baked lemon lavender shortbread. Yum. I think I'll be baking this weekend.
