Pungently sweet, deeply expressive. Gooseberry, sandalwood, narcissus-like flowers, maple syrup, baker’s chocolate in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with savory resonance; crisp, velvety mouthfeel. The long, quiet finish is flavor-saturated.

Notes:

This coffee tied for the fourth-highest rating in a tasting of holiday coffees for Coffee Review‘s December 2018 tasting report. A blend comprised of coffees from Kiambu County, Kenya and Guji Zone, Ethiopia. Revel Coffee is a micro-roaster located in Billings, Montana.

The Bottom Line: A fine and wintery Ethiopia-Kenya blend named for the bonds formed within and beyond the family: deep, rich, both sweet and savory.
