    We're doing the Pirates of Coffee Ramadan calendar out of order, so starting with this one #17.

    I'm Chinese, so I know lychee/longan character well! When you open the bag, there's the lovely aroma. It carries to the coffee. The tasting notes here are spot on - lychee, black tea, hibiscus. It's not too tart though, and it has a glycerin mouthfeel and a lot of natural sweetness.

    Amazed they could get this type of character in the fermentation process, and a job very well done by the roaster.

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: 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.
