Review:

This coffee starts with a strong woody note with hints of caramel and honey. Sadly, a burnt paper like pungency soon takes over, messing up a beautiful complexity I anticipated in the beginning. Makes you feel like this medium roast is a dark roast. The only saving grace is that this is one of those coffees which starts tasting better as it ages. Slight fruitiness can be sensed at lower temperatures with notes of peach and apricot. But at the end of the day, an undesirable imbalance takes over, especially when it comes to manually brewing it. The gripping steely finish is hard to ignore. This is not a delicate coffee to enjoy.
