This fine coffee received an excellent 91pt review from coffee expert, Kenneth Davis! Here is what he said:
" Rich, roast-rounded. Almond, dark chocolate, strawberry guava, rhododendron-like flowers, orange zest in aroma and cup. Mild, sweet-toned acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The chocolate-framed finish is quietly resonant and deeply sweet, with continued hints of flowers." - Kenneth Davids, CoffeeReview.com, November 2016

Aftertaste: I thought the aftertaste was amazing. Sweet and full of fruit and chocolate notes.
