Their mission is to offer fresh craft coffee through approachable, inclusive experiences.  They have a coffee bar at their brewery at Lovejoy Wharf in Boston.

This was a single origin Burundi coffee, Burundi is a small African country between Tanzania and Rwanda. They do have a growing coffee community and export coffees around the world. This coffee was done as a light roast.

This was a good coffee it was light and airy, the first flavor we noticed was apricot. They have tasting notes of white grapefruit which is common from coffees in from this area. This wasn’t an acidic as some can be, so we feel it was very well done. It was on the slightly on the fruity side, but not overly fruity or floral, which is why it makes a for a nice soft summer coffee. Very good coffee.

Coffee Rating – 91pts.

As an espresso, it was light and creamy, not your typical espresso and much lighter than the roast would indicate.

Espresso Rating – 87pts.
