    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.

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: Ecuador
Ecuadorian specialty coffee is characterized by its diverse microclimates, fertile volcanic soil, and high elevations in the Andes, resulting in beans with distinctive flavor profiles. These coffees often exhibit bright acidity, medium to full body, and complex flavors, ranging from fruity and floral to sweet and chocolatey.
Bean Source Region: Pinchicha
Pichincha refers to an active Andean stratovolcano and the region around it in Ecuador. Pinchica coffee, grown on farms neighboring cloud forests and towering volcanoes, exhibits a delicate balance of acidity and body. Pichincha's beans encapsulate the region's rich biodiversity with flavor notes that often hint at tropical fruit, floral undertones, and a touch of nutty sweetness. The cool mountain temperatures combined with the equatorial sun provide a slow maturation for the cherries, helping to develop deep, complex flavor.
