This coffee has notes of cocoa nibs, lemon citrus, orange zest and peanuts. The cups starts with a note of cocoa and then the citrus takes over. There is an underlying bitterness to the cup which I could liken to orange zest. There is a slight nuttiness to the balance.The cup is medium bodied. It is interesting to find these flavours in a washed coffee and that is what makes it a fairly decent coffee. It is one of those coffees which goes well with breads and savoury foods.
