This coffee has notes of dark chocolate, malts, nuts and slightly acidic. The brand mentions cocoa, toasted nuts and raisins as the tasting notes. I couldn't really identify with the raisins but there is a slight acidity to the cup. The coffee starts with strong bold flavours and attempts to be complex. It ends of a sweet bitter note which lingers on your palate for a very long time. I think this coffee is much more suited for milk based drinks or food pairings and not manual brewing methods.
