This roast is all about the elegant sweet red cherries that Nicaragua is known for. From first sip expect a blast of flavour on your palate that will leave you craving more.
While this bean sparks a brightness (acidity) this is medium-high, it doesn't overpower and is easy to sit with. The brightness is diffused by a clean, dark cocoa truffle, and nutty flavour with soft body, elegant sweetness and light citric notes.
This is a pleasant, light yet complex coffee that makes for a reliable everyday brew. A real cherry champion that is ready to ignite your mornings.
Taste The Difference: Each bag contains 400g (~1lb) of freshly roasted fair-trade organic beans that are crafted to order.
Roast Recommendation: Light to medium
