    This is a unique, stand-out roast! The flavor tends towards green tea, complemented with toasted rice. It is well-balanced, well-crafted and delicious!

    This is one of my favorite cups of coffee that Ive had this year.

    A super bright Kenyan that tastes like candy. Bright clementine, green apple. Cola and brown sugar.

    Very naturally sweet and smooth.

    Cupping Method:v60, 204 degrees.

    This is a wonderful roast, with a rather unique flavor profile. I couldn't quite place the intriguing flavors, but I smelled chocolate and tasted a creamy dark cherry with a deep sweetness. The flavors were well-balanced throughout the cup.

    I *think* this is robusta, but I have to dig out the sheet that I got with the shipment to double confirm.

    It's an incredibly sweet and vibrant coffee, and I'm only 90% sure it's robust. It says it all. I get ripe peach, a touch of lactic sweetness and mouthfeel, and a strong black tea finish. As with specialty robusta, I don't know if the average coffee drinker will love it (they will at least like this). The effort that goes into sourcing and roasting great specialty robusta is tremendous, and I don't know if anyone does it better than Suedhang.

    UPDATE - it's Arabica, which makes sense.

    Cupping Method:Hario v60 pourover, 204F

    I'm generally not a huge Indian coffee fan, but this one was totally different than anything I've had before, not the chocolate/earthy style at all.

    It drinks a little backwards with a smooth orange pekoe type finish. A caramel sweetness hits first, then some honey/raspberry. It definitely has a unique overarching philosophy. Suedhang says magnolia, I don't really have a strong sense of that one, but I thought wildflower.

    I love this canephora, and I'm obsessed with it. I've probably only had one other robusta as good. I've also had the pleasure of driving through the Ecuadorian lowlands where this coffee was grown.

    First off, Suedhang packaging is gorgeous, both packaging and tasting notes. A great gift for any specialty coffee lover who appreciates design. This coffee has a wonderful aroma on the grind, but the treat is once your brew it.

    I do get the vanilla and papaya notes. But the biggest thing for me is this coffee drinks like rooibos crossed with genmaicha. And rooibos tea does often carry a little bit of vanilla, so that makes sense that they compliment each other.

    There's no harshness, bitterness, or rubbery character that you get in bad robusta.

    Also, as one might expect with robusta, it seems quite high in caffiene!!

    Full disclosure - it doesn't drink like regular specialty coffee, and you need an open-mind to enjoy it.

    Cupping Method:Various temperatures on Hario v60 and Chemex. Close to 200F got a delicate, complex cup.

    I really enjoyed this decaf. It has a ton of natural sweetness, and the first thing that hits is the caramel. There's a lot of natural sweetness here, the I get a sort of honey/blackberry combo and a clean finish. Platform is a light black tea.

    An intriguing roast with a sweetness that is reminiscent of caramel with a light touch of pear. I'm not sure what type of roast this is, but it presents as a medium, playing with aspects of both light and dark roasts. This is one of the most compelling decaf coffees I've sampled.

    Sweet, caramel, leans to the dark side, and really enjoyable. Love having a complex and fun decaf option like this.

    A very intriguing roast! The unusual flavor profile leans earthy with a tobacco/straw undercurrent, complemented with a surprising touch of cherry.

Editor's Overview

Suedhang blew me away with the diversity and uniqueness of their coffees. I'll say that I think they are a roaster for specialty coffee lovers/explorers. Many of their roasts have very unique profiles that every day drinkers won't be used that.
