This coffee opens with some bright notes, which are well balanced by a complex sweetness that is akin to the more luxuriant complex sweetness of caramel. Subtle vegetal notes add notes of dark spices and blend with the coffee’s sweetness to give the impression of marshmallow.
About The Producer
This coffee comes from small farmers located on the Kuta Ridge, which sits atop the Nebilyer Valley. The average size of the farms that produced this lot are quite small- ranging from 1-2 hectares each. The coffee is processed at the Kuta mill which operates between the territories of the Ulga and Kolga tribes. The coffee mill there has brought a lasting peace between the tribes which were historically in conflict. The mill offers bonuses to farmers who consistently bring the mill high quality coffee.
