SCA score on arrival sample for the various grades:

AAA/AA/AB- 83.50

Peaberry- 83.75

PB/C- 82.75

Cup profile commentary: 

AAA/AA/AB- Caramel, berries, red apple, buttery, juicy, great balance. Great for a high quality and sweet and well structured component in a blend.

Peaberry- Toffee, Orange, Creamy. Awesome single origin option. Imagine ristrettos and aeropress extractions...

PB/C- Caramelised sugar, lime, grapes, pear, chamomile, smooth and juicy, elegant. An unexpectedly exotic and interesting lot. Add some flair to a limited edition blend. Probably almost cheating in the context of capsules and even improve the profile of a filter blend.
