As a single origin espresso this coffee really shines, you get hints of dates, cherry and vanilla, with a lingering bittersweet chocolate, and caramel undertones in the finish.

Coffee Review gave us a 92 on this coffee. Big, fruit- and floral-toned. Dark chocolate, black cherry, hazelnut, musky lily, a hint of rye whisky in aroma and cup. Round, resonant acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Lily and chocolate carry into a deep finish.

This holiday, bring something that will wow the in-laws, and is sure to please all your guests. This coffee is a candid reminder of just how decadent the holidays can be when you want to please and impress a variety of palettes. We love it as a Chemex as well as on espresso and as a Hario V60. Cheers!
