Farm Description

A sweet candied nut smell comes off the dry grounds, clean if not slightly restrained in City to City+ roasts. Closer to Full City yields more of a black strap molasses smell, with a hint of Dutch drinking cocoa. A brown sugar smell blossoms after adding hot water, and along with 5-spice and sweet cream scents reminds me of pumpkin pie. This coffee will appeal to those looking for balance, sweetness most apparent and right up front, with subtle suggestions of raisin and spice element as the coffee cools. Acidity is moderate, what you would expect from milder Centrals or even Brazil. The finish shows a pleasant cocoa dusted almond flavor, with slight tea-like tang. The sweetness holds up extremely well to dark roasting too, Full City roasts with a bittersweet chocolate bar flavor that lingers long in the finish. A chocolatey SO espresso too!
