This is a formidable coffee that is at one extreme end of the flavour spectrum. Much of the coffee’s unique character is down to the wet-hulled processing method which builds body and sweetness. Expect big, bold flavours of cocoa nib and cedar with hints of orange oil and pepper. Medium acidity and a long, clean finish round this coffee off.
