Overall Quality: 20 / 25

Total Points: 84 / 100


The coffee has notes of chocolate, malts and caramel. It ends with a slight peppery touch complimenting the sweet chocolate notes. What I really loved about this coffee is its performance with time. It does not lose much of its sweet balance and has a great rounded body. Makes for a great evening coffee to enjoy over ice.

Best for: Pourover

Worst for: French Press

Pro tips:

Make an iced pourover with 60% ice to get a brilliant fruity yet chocolaty balance

Final verdict: One of their better roasts. Can definitely buy.
