It is a great example of what I love in a coffee. I love a fruity punchy coffee, with plenty of tropical flavors and a long finish. When I get a washed coffee that matches that description I can drink mug after mug. El Amate has that drinkability in spades. You can focus on the juicy tropical flavors or just enjoy the sweetness and deliciousness of everything merging together. Tasty.
