The coffee is a robusta. Not arabica. Inspite of this being a award winning specialty robusta, it did not appeal to my palate as expected. The aroma and flavours are not in consonance with each other. It has sweet and citrusy aromatics but the tasting notes do not have any of the same. Instead it has notes of chocolate and malts. Dark roasting a single origin pulp sun dried coffee is questionable. High on bitters and not a great balance. The finish is smoky leaving behind a dry and intense aftertaste.

Pro tips:

Use finer grinds and lower water temperature to extract a better balance
