Overall Quality: 22 / 25

Total Points: 91 / 100


This coffee has tasting notes of plums, cherries and slight citrus. The roaster mentions plums, cloves and well rounded acidity as the tasting notes. This coffee doesn't have a distinct aroma when you open the pack, but upon brewing will give away the beauty it packs. It has a great balance in the cup in terms of complex acidity and slight sweets. The plum and cherry like notes are distinct. While I could not catch any cloves in the cup, I did notice a slight citrus note running in the background which starts getting highlighted as the coffee cools down. The cup finishes well and has a well rounded acidity to it. Amazing flavours, brilliant complexity and I personally loved how it finishes off on your palate. Another great from this roaster and the estate.

Balance: Complex acidity

Complexity: High

Best for: Pourover, Aeropress

Worst for: Espresso

Pro tips:

Use a higher water temperature for brewing to get the right balance

Higher drinking temperature for a sweet-rounded acidity whereas lower drinking temperature for a bright cup
