My taste evaluation:

Very sweet-toned aroma: pungent, cocoa-ish, a hint of flowers. In the cup rich, complexly expressed acidity, syrupy mouthfeel. Deep floral tones are supported by a crisp, lemony baker’s chocolate. Long, flavor-saturated finish.

Remember:

Certified organically grown at an elevation over 8500 feet above sea level, making it perhaps the highest grown coffee in the world. This nuance consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading.

Final Thoughts

Calling all coffee snobs: Balanced, complete, big-bodied, subtly exotic. Collectors of coffee experiences may be interested in consuming what is possibly the world's highest grown coffee.
