This coffee is grown in volcanic soil at altitudes of 1300-1400 masl and is honey processed using local hot spring water and sun-dried. It’s super exciting. Look for loads of juiciness, Black Cherry and plenty of winey tasting notes. It’s also super grapey, some mild white grape but also some really tart like Concord grape.
