This coffee has notes of chocolate and nuts almost almond-like. There are underlying notes of pepper giving it a distinct spiciness. There is acidity but it's just there, overpowered by the chocolate bitters. I found the balance to be a bit off. The body of this coffee is decent and finishes into a smoky slatey aftertaste with a dry finish. Not too impressed by this coffee.
