Review:

This coffee has notes of orange citrus and sour grapes. The roaster mention rum, raisins and orange juice as the tasting notes. I haven't been able to nail the note of rum yet, but the other two are apparent in the cup. What was the absolute winner for me was the mouthfeel. The cup has starts with a tartiness complemented with a brilliant body and ends with a zesty note. The underlying sweetness and the dominant complex acidity make this a superb coffee to enjoy on a mellow Sunday afternoon, with a book and some good music. This coffee is powerful enough to evoke such an imagery. Brilliant piece of art.
