The coffee is a popular Yirgacheffe, Ethiopian, from the Guji Zone. The coffee is light, smooth, not too nutty or dry. Tasting notes of butterscotch, floral, melons, and hints of citrus.

As a coffee it has quite a different flavor profile, but is even smoother and easy to drink. We can taste the peach, and light lemons, with a subtle nutty finish.
