Taste Notes: A well balanced blend of fruity notes & darker, spicy flavours, leading to a lingering flavour reminiscent of Christmas cake. Low Acidity, medium to full bodied.
This is a dark roasted blend of 100% Arabica coffee beans from Colombia, India & Papua New Guinea.
It's relatively low acidity coffee, yet there's a really well-balanced lingering fruity flavour, which thanks to being balanced with the darker slightly spicy notes, reminds me of fruitcake.
In my opinion, the best part of Christmas cake is that dark fruitcake sitting under the sickly icing.
I have a bit of a sweet tooth, so I do like that ridiculously sweet icing - but on its own.
I'd usually eat it separately to the cake, as that rich dark fruitcake is far too good on its own to spoil it with the sweet icing.
When I first cupped this coffee, the first thing I was reminded of, was this dark, fruity Christmas cake.
