Roast Recommendations City to City+ produces the brightest cups, and we also enjoyed the mix of berry and cocoa notes that came with Full City roasting

Mahiga shows both tart and dark fruit undertones depending on roast development, and fruited sweetness fills out the cup flavor base when brewed. City roasts smell orange-like, a sort of pithy smell of orange peel comes through, along with sweet dried berry smells. The wet aroma has the warmth and sweetness of blackberry jam cooking on the stove, especially strong at City+ roast level. Breaking through the crust puffed a slight floral fruit note too in the steam, not so recognizable, but adding a retronasal affect to the olfactory experience. The floral element shines in the cup as a blueberry note, a perfumed accent that comes from a blueberry picked straight from the shrub at peak ripeness. Other dark fruit notes that we noted when tasting a City+ roast are grape and blackberry juices, blood orange, and red punch. "Juicy" is an accurate description for Mahiga, a title that's retained at both ends of the roast spectrum (at least with our roasts, which did not go darker than Full City). And at the outer edge of roast development a dark grape and chocolate flavor develops, and a chocolate-covered dry blueberry note fills the finish.
