Reviews

Coffee Review, January 2018
Overall Score: 94

"Resonantly fruit-forward, elegant, complex. Honey, dried raspberry, chocolate truffle, aged rum, a hint of marjoram in aroma and cup... A juicy-sweet Ethiopia natural cup: lively and fruit-toned, with a hint of elegant, rum-like sweet ferment."
