    This coffee is unique and delicious. Very tropical, I get almost a strawberry/star fruit up front. Theres a split second where it feels like you have warm cocoa and theres a nice smooth finish with a touch of tangerine. Acidity is really nice.

    I paid $25 for it.

    Cupping Method:Chemex Pourover, 207 degrees, natural filter.

    This coffee is packed with flavor and has a nice acidity. It almost leaves a tart aftertaste. Really nice if you are looking a bold, unique flavor.

    A unique, dry flavor, on the earthy, floral side. I really enjoyed the flavor, but the finish was a noticeably more acidic than I prefer.

More Details

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
Bean Source Country: Myanmar
Myanmar's coffee growing centers around Shan State, where Arabica thrives at higher altitudes. Formerly known as Burma, coffee production in Myanmar faces many challenges. Still, the small specialty lots with mild acidity, and earthy and wine-like characteristics are often well-worth the trouble.
Bean Source Region: Shan State
Grown in the Shan mountains of Myanmar, the combination of the favorable climate, rich volcanic soil, and altitude results in coffee beans with distinct characteristics, often featuring notes of floral aromas, vibrant acidity, and a smooth, well-rounded body. Shan State is considered a rising star in the specialty coffee world.
