    Id probably file this in the interesting and fun, but not sure Id really want to drink it again category.

    Strong chocolate banana nose pre and post grind.

    Tea and toffee note indeed. It has creamy taste and nose. Bitter almond/walnut note mid-palate Im wrestling with. Peanut banana overtone. A lot of vanilla, maybe too much. Funky in a different way.

    Didnt like it hot at all, it was pretty bitter. When cool it was fun but didnt really want any more after a half cup.

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.
Bean Source Region: Risaralda
Grown in the rich volcanic soils of the Andes Mountains, coffee from Risaralda often has a balanced acidity and a smooth, velvety body. Its flavor profile is often characterized by notes of caramel sweetness, citrus brightness, and hints of cocoa, reflecting the unique microclimate and altitude of the region.
