    An immensely naturally sweet coffee that drinks extremely clean and smooth with a lot of fruitiness. There is definitely a citrus note, chocolate orange, and something like a sweet, juicy peach. I didn't get a lot of complexity, but this is about as easy to drink coffee as you'll ever find. I drank 3 cups of it in about 20 minutes without thinking that much about it.

    The thing that stands out is how naturally sweet this coffee is without even the slightest hint of bitterness. I think honey is a fair descriptor here. It's a very smooth sweetness, to the point of almost having a touch of glycerine.

    We also ordered a Colombian gesha, that has some similar characteristics but is funkier and a bit more complex. I'd say they were both great but I liked this one a bit more.

    Cupping Method:Chemex pourover. Bought along with 2 other bags from Black & White from the Internet.

    A well-crafted roast! The flavor presents as an intriguingly complex. I could taste pineapple and cola, complemented with a impressively sweet acidity.

More Details

Roast Level: Light
Light roast coffee is a delicately roasted coffee that retains more of the beans' natural flavors and characteristics. Light-roasted coffees have bright acidity, complex fruit, and floral notes. Light roast coffee does not have less caffeine than darker roasts because caffeine levels remain stable during roasting.
Bean Source Country: Colombia
Colombian coffees are known for their balanced taste, featuring bright acidity, medium body, and a range of flavors, including fruity notes, caramel sweetness, and nutty undertones. Colombia's worldwide reputation for producing great coffee at scale is well-deserved. Increasingly some of the best microlot specialty roasts are coming from Colombia thanks to their expertise in cultivation and process.
Bean Source Region: Antioquia
Nestled in the Andes Mountains, Antioquian farms benefit from elevations ranging from 1,200 to 1,900 meters above sea level, where the cooler temperatures and unique microclimates contribute to coffee beans with chocolate notes, vibrant acidity, full body, and a delightful combination of fruity and nutty flavors.
