The beans have the fragrance of wet hickory, leather, burro banana, prune, damp soil, dark chocolate, turpentine, ash, burlap, and fish sauce

The grounds have the fragrance of soy sauce, hickory, damp soil, onyx cocoa powder, burnt caramel, prune, dried black cherry, dried hibiscus, hickory, carbon and leather

CUPPING

The aroma of this coffee is of toasted brown rice, prune, dark cocoa powder, black walnut, cinnamon, leather, mushroom, tobacco, soy sauce, and burnt dark brown sugar

This is a full body coffee that feels heavy with a chewy and slick coating that is cotton like

This is a medium acidity coffee that is unbalanced with a sharp forward tart note that is lingering with a dry muted finish

The flavors of this coffee start with a strong punch of ash, carbon, onyx cocoa powder, black walnut, hickory, leather, dried woods ear mushroom, tobacco, soy sauce, and clove stem

As it cools these flavors of carbon and ash along with fish sauce intensify but there is a creamy finish that is very quick and delicate like of half and half

This is the worst coffee i have had in a few years and do not recommend it to anyone
