Roasting: We like this coffee right at Full City (Medium). It's pretty versatile and roasts evenly so you can experiment with the roast levels if you like. The flavor changes--more orange notes in lighter roasts and chocolate tones pick up and become increasingly darker chocolate as your roast progresses.
Recommendation: For people who enjoy a mild, smooth sweet cup of coffee without aggressive edginess or distracting complexity.
Reminder: This is raw coffee. You have to roast it before brewing.
Our Review: It seems like so many coffees attempt to fill a niche lately. Wildly fruity and tea like or super complex and syrupy, you can find all these and everything in between. But sometimes you just want an easy drinking, laid back kinda coffee. Well, look no further, this is the coffee for you!
Now when we say this coffee is easy going, we absolutely don't mean boring! Mild orange acidity on the front end gives way to medium to full body with a creamy texture. The flavors are well balanced with nothing competing for your attention, but you'll notice gentle sweetness in the notes of milk chocolate, honey and orange. Finally, the finish is clean and almost palate cleansing. This coffee isn't meant to blow your mind, it's meant to put your mind at ease so enjoy this one as a relaxing Saturday morning cup!
