We love how complex and distinctive it is. It’s like a food pairing experience combining taste notes of sour berries, lime, dark chocolate and brown sugar. Like a cranberry, this coffee has a certain tartness that makes you salivate. Brown sugar sweetness cuts through the acidity and balances the cup. The aftertaste combines a pleasant bitterness, like dark chocolate, and a subtle dryness, like a currant. The notes in this coffee are very similar to some red wines, sporting juicy berry notes, a smooth texture and fruity aromas. This is a multi-layered coffee and you can choose to highlight its sour or sweet side by manipulating extraction.
