Bright, crisp, floral. Sweet flowers (honeysuckle, narcissus), honey, tart tangerine, roasted cocoa nib in aroma and cup. Bright, nuanced acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Very soft, gently flavor-saturated finish.

Who Should Drink It
Superbly refined Latin American style breakfast cup should please any drinker of light- to medium-roasted coffees. The sweetly tart citrus and crisp cocoa give just enough grounding authority to the soft, enveloping floral character.
