Aroma: 17 / 20

Flavour: 19 / 25

Finish: 18 / 20

Overall Quality: 20 / 25

Total Points: 83 / 100


This coffee has notes of chocolate, caramel, toffee and a slight earthiness to it. It is high on bitters but more along the lines of cocoa nibs. It has a heavy body, almost steely. The coffee finished with a smooth dark chocolate note and a smoky aftertaste owing to the roast profile. A fairly decent coffee but not sure if this is the way forward for a coffee like Tat Tvam Asi.

Best for: Pourovers, Espresso

Worst for: AeroPress

Pro tips:

Ask the roaster for the best recipes as per your brewing style

Their coffees pair well with food. Try pairing with a cookie or a cheesecake

Final verdict: Recommended for those who like a darker roast specialty coffee
