The cup is delicate with mandarin-orange-like flavor, tea-biscuit and barley, sweet lemon accent notes emerge with mild acidity overall. There is also a sweet green tea flavor as the cup cools. Keep this one light to truly enjoy this lot. City to City+.
The lighter roast dry fragrance has strong hazelnut aspect and an interesting grain note like wheat thin crackers. Add water and the wet aromatics become very sweet and malty-honey syrup, with floral notes (wildflowers) initially, and hints of sage. There is something pleasantly savory about the aromatics. The cup is delicate. In the light roast the cup has very mandarin-orange-like flavor, tea-biscuit and barley, with a very mild overall intensity of flavor. As it cools, sweet lemon accent notes emerge, more as a flavor than an aspect of acidity (it's a mild and proportionate acidity overall). There is also a sweet green tea flavor as the cup cools. Darker roasts take on more bittersweet and chocolate character with some anise and herbal hints, but the lighter roasts are what distinguish the quality of this coffee.
