Very sweet throughout the profile. Nut and semi-sweet chocolate notes in the aroma. In the cup tart coffee fruit notes make a distinct and delicate lean toward chocolate. The tart cherry tones persist in the sweet short finish, fading toward astringency in the long.
Historically Zimbabwe has been the premier coffee origin of southern Africa, admired for its moderately acidy, sweetly fruity coffees. La Lucie Estates is a leading producer of Zimbabwe coffee, exclusively growing the admired SL 28 variety, the cultivar of arabica that produces most of Kenya's finest coffees. Klatch Coffee is an award-winning small-batch roasting company in the Los Angeles area whose resident barista and trainer, Heather Perry, won both the 2003 and 2007 United States Barista Championships brewing a Klatch Coffee espresso blend.

Who Should Drink It
Naturally sweet and delicately bright, a good choice for bottomless cup black coffee drinkers.
