Rich flavor

I love this coffee. I like dark roast. It has rich dark chocolate flavor and is great for drip and espresso as well!

Bright Citrus Acidity

I liked this coffee. I roasted it on the light side. The acidity is at the beginning and it has a nice chocolaty finish.

As described

Profile meets description. I used it with a blend. Worked great.

Excellent in the City - City + Zone

Great flavor, an all-day-coffee. The cupping notes are spot-on, as usual. I ran one small batch at Full City and it was still really good, though I prefer the lighter roasts.

farm to cup

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
