La Bendicion - Nicaragua
This coffee, from renowned producer Luis Alberto, is a pure joy to drink. It's delicate, and fruity. The blood orange and yellow currant acidity shines throughout the cup, with its honey sweetness closing the dance.
It can remind you of white tea as it cools down, and there is a subtle hazelnut and milk chocolate finish if you let it cool down enough.
Tasting notes: yellow currant, white tea, blood orange, honey
Roast degree: 1/6
