The coffee cherries in Kanzu Lot 19 are grown in the hills above the Kanzu washing station, where cooler temperatures slow down the development process. This makes the coffee cherries more dense and packed with flavor, which comes to the forefront with the help of the Kanzu washing station's rigorous preparation process. Kanzu Lot 19 is a coffee with a great balance of sweetness, spice, and acidity. A full-bodied grape note pairs well with a tart lemon flavor. These two tastes are highlighted by a touch of vanilla that softens the profile overall and gives it a smooth finish. Kanzu Lot 19 is a really inviting cup of coffee, and that's coming from us, the people that drink a ton of coffee.
