Ramal FTO Mexican by Johnson Brothers Coffee Review | CoffeeReview.com

Blind Assessment: Quiet, subtly original. A pleasant, starchy caramel sweetness, fresh-cut wood, fir perhaps, with hints of citrus and rose-like flowers in aroma and cup. Roundly and gently tart acidity; silky mouthfeel. Flavor carries quietly into a sweet, balanced finish.

Who Should Drink It: A naturally sweet, comfortable coffee with an aromatic that shares the freshness of moist, fresh-cut wood with an appealing floral-toned caramel.
