Brace yourself folks, because this is a wild one. Wild as in potentially in the top 3 funkiest coffees we ever had.
The aroma is intense and tropical. You can smell so many yellow and green tropical fruits. We had tons of kiwi and pineapple.
The first sip is pretty crazy, and your brain might malfunction for a second or two because there is so much going on.
First, the tropical vibes. The main impression we had was star fruit. Sweet, acidic but balanced with a slightly herbal tone. The kiwi and pineapple we had on the nose are still there, but more subtle.
We also had some dark spices and tea notes. Think Pu'er fermented tea and clove.
Sweetness wise, think very dark honey, like buckwheat.
This is a one of a kind coffee, almost like if the naturals from Yunnan and PNG we had a while back were blended together.
We recommend this coffee as a filter first. The espresso are good, but required lots of dialing-in as it's a very eclectic coffee!
