Cup profile commentary: A classic African blending component, largely chosen because of it’s pleasant acidity profile and espresso-centric flavour notes. Brown spice aromatics with a  creamy mouthfeel and notes of chocolate, orange rind and apple in the cup. It’s inherently destined  to flourish in an espresso blend.
