tasting experience

Bright acidity, good structure, layers, and complex. When it is hot, citrus with also orange, getting warm; look for fruit candy and citrus notes followed by florals, red berries, and dark sugar sweetness; when it’s getting cold, more berries and tea, more juiciness. During or in-between temperature changes, notes of blueberries, elderflower, and some grapes in the cup experience. Filter brew is full of tea and florals; espresso is bright with fruit candy brings along with citrus, orange syrup, and molasses sugar; when in milk-based, notes of dark chocolate mix berries.

Great complexity, balance, clean and blueberries aftertaste.
