    A pleasant and clean characteristic Burundi. I get pomegranate right off the bat, then a very silky/smooth texture and black tea mid-palate. It's maybe a little glycerine/simple syrup in terms of sweetness. Very, very clean.

    It has a citrus/tangerine finish.

    Cupping Method:I had this at Wayward Coffee in Dallas, TX, recommended by the barista.

    This coffee is fairly smooth. It does deliver on some of the promised fruitiness/berry, but I don't think it really comes together for me. Black cherry comes through the strongest. The fruitiness isn't quite bright, and it's mixed in with something I don't live, I'd describe it the part of the caramel that's not sweet perhaps. It reminds me of fruit that's just a little too ripe.

    It needs something a little bit brighter to bring it all together. I'd say it's not out of character for an Ecuadorian but the roasts I've been liking here bring out a bit more bright trailing acidity.

    Cupping Method:I had this at Wayward Coffee in Dallas. Picture is bag from a rack at Wayward.
