Cup Impression

Raspberry / Brownie / Vibrant

This coffee has an undeniable buzzing, energetic quality to it. Raspberry and black currant acidities jump onto the palate and the juiciness just doesn't quit. Medium heavy body of chocolate brownie anchors the cup with its intense sweetness, while the tart red and purple fruits take center stage. A very intense and complex cup that keeps its balance from start to finish.
