Crisp and refined aroma: butter, nut, and delicate hints of aromatic wood and baking spices. Penetrating, fruit-toned acidity, silky mouthfeel and delicate flavors that suggest orange, flowers, peas and nut. Aromatic wood remerges in the finish, along with a dry, orange-toned chocolate in the long.
This coffee is made up entirely of the Caturra variety of Arabica and is Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Calgary-based Fratello is a second-generation boutique coffee roaster owned by three brothers who focus on responsible trade relationships with coffee growers. Visit
