A ready-to-drink black coffee, tested cold. Dried guava, dark chocolate, frangipane, vanilla, cedar. Sweet-tart structure with crisp, juicy acidity; refreshingly silky mouthfeel. Guava and dark chocolate lead in the finish, with undertones of cedar and vanilla. Like sweet guava ice cream with a cedar edge in milk.
The coffee tied for the highest rating in a tasting of ready-to-drink black coffees for Coffee Review’s July 2021 tasting report. Prepared by the cold-brew method, which involves prolonged steeping of ground coffee in cold water. Contains no additives or ingredients other than coffee and water. The green coffee used is a natural-processed Yellow Caturra from Fazenda Rio Verde in Brazil that is Rainforest-Alliance-certified. GK Coffee is a nano-roastery in Yilan, Taiwan that offers both retail and wholesale coffee. For more information, visit www.gkcoffee.com.tw or email [email protected]
An unusual, uniquely composed single-origin Brazil cold-brew: tropical, tart-leaning, richly fruity.
