|Coffee Origin:||Ethiopia; Guatemala|
|Est. Price:||$16.00/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||February 2022|
Blind Assessment: Brightly sweet, spice-toned. Plum, nutmeg, almond, freesia-like flowers, orange zest in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with pert acidity; lightly satiny mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of freesia and orange zest.
Notes: Battlecreek Coffee Roasters has a mission of supporting the victims of human trafficking — a percentage of proceeds from coffee sales goes to local safe houses. For more information, visit www.battlecreek.coffee.
The Bottom Line: A straight-ahead, balanced and inviting blend of a washed Guatemala and a natural Ethiopia intended for both drip and espresso formats.
