Cupping

The aroma of the coffee is of bakers chocolate, Puloson, pineapple, dried papaya, white grape, noni, licorice root, blood orange, Pitaya, milo wood, camomile, and star fruit

This is a full body coffee that is smooth with a very juicy and syrupy mouth feel that is slightly sticky and creamy and the end

This is a high acidity coffee that is bright with a tart forward tapering fast to a juicy and structured complexity

The flavors of this coffee are of cream fresh, dark chocolate, noni, Pitaya, muted cinnamon, green papaya, milo wood, yellow pineapple,  Puloson, licorice root, kaffir lime, blood orange, black apple, and all spice

As it cools the earthy notes and more developed like the licorice root, and dark chocolate along with the bright citrus note like of red grapefruit peel and toasted coriander. The is very pronounced 

Disappointed that there was no flavor of lychee just in aroma

Gino

The aroma of the cup is of Puloson, bakers chocolate, bell pepper, licorice root, noni, green papaya, endive, and camomile

The flavors of the cup are of dark chocolate, Puloson, saffron, cinnamon,  soil, milo wood, clove, all spice, bay leaf, licorice root, 

The acidity is still high with a bright and tart mouth feel that is delicate at first but sharp at the end

The body is still rich and smooth with a slight sticky and creamy texture that has been brought out. it is not as juicy but dryer then when cupped

I recommend using the Gino for this coffee to bring out more delicate and undertones of this coffee
