Flavor notes include apricot, dark chocolate, and hints of jasmine. Clean silky texture, balanced acidity with a sweet aftertaste.
Good for Filter & Espresso.
Our favorite brew method is the Chemex to get crisp acidity and subtle fruit/floral notes. As an espresso, this coffee is smooth, chocolatey, nutty, and just delicious in the cup!
Chemex: 20g coffee, medium-coarse grind + 300g water @ 200F -> bloom for 45s and then brew for 3.5 mins.
Espresso: Optimal brew ratio 1:1.36 - 22g in, 30g out, over 36s extraction.
