This zesty coffee has hints of sour citrus fruits such as a lemon with a rounded body. As this coffee ages, it develops a dryness of chocolate bitters. The balance between sweetness, sourness and bitters pretty strikes as a coffee which shows the experience of the planter and the roaster. Finally, it has a buttermilk-like finish and tastes well at lower temperatures too. My only complaint with it was the papery cardboard-like note it developed as the coffee aged. A straight-forward no-nonsense coffee. Makes a good everyday option.
Best for: Pourovers, Espresso
Worst for: AeroPress
Flavours peak in the 8 - 12 day window from roast day. Consume fast
Brew at 92°C but drop temperature of final brew to 70 °C by decanting for a much more rounded coffee
Final verdict: Recommended for those who like medium-roast with mild to no sourness.
