    My wife liked this one but Im having trouble getting excited about. I liked the aroma which smelled liked chocolate and freshly baked bread. I get milk chocolate and some blueberry, and its pretty smooth. Im not finding a bright note anywhere.

    Feels like a bit of a variation on some of smooth but not straightforward Brazilians.

    Cupping Method:I made this twice.

    Best was 2 pour v60 method:

    50g bloom
    130g immersion
    197F bloom, 195F remainder

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.
