“One of the most outstanding Single Origins I’ve tasted after 26 years in the coffee industry” - Merlo Coffee Head Roaster.
A truly exceptional coffee bean featuring flavours of sweet nougat, malt, stone fruit and candied orange. The strawberry aroma precedes a smooth, buttery and balanced body, crisp green apple and apricot acidity and a sweet, fruity aftertaste.
