Since focusing on specialty coffee, Olga has been able to improve the quality of life for her family and employees of the farm.
We are really noticing complex deep flavors of red grape and plum. There is also a current of bright raspberry tartness that shines throughout. Looking forward to brewing this one, cheers!

I do taste the raspberry and plum notes, enjoying this in the morning and for my afternoon cup. Balanced and reliable, enjoying having it in my rotation!

Smooth even taste but no strong overtones.

I haven't been able to extract the fruit notes yet, which is a shame as I prefer stonefruit to the chocolate I'm getting out now. However, the classic notes are well-balanced and have good body behind them; I suspect I need to keep tweaking extraction.

Beatiful Acidity, but low fruit flavor
MC sent me this coffee and it has a beatiful, lemongrass tea flavor, and tangerine acidity, but the fruit notes are so settle, i found some peanut and raisin notes, that are related with roasting development. This is a coffee for the afternoon/evening hours, and I recommend with methods like Kalitha, Switch or Stagg, for avoid those flavour notes, because you can change time of the pour over. It is decent. Cheers!
