CUPPING

This is a full body coffee the is smooth with a juicy feel and a cotton-like texture that is chewy and thick

This is a high acidity coffee that is juicy with a sharp forward note that lingers throughout finishing to a clean dry mouth feel

GINO

The aroma oolong, sassafrass root, cocoa powder, yellow nectarine, fresh tobacco, longon, chamomile, pine nut, bell pepper, oak, dried ginger, barley, soil, and yucca root

The body is just like being cupped but instead of cotton its more velvety

The acidity is till high and really juicy with more of a sweet stone fruit or tropical note now

The flavors of the cup of dragon fruit, squash blossom, yellow tea, apricot, saffron, turmeric, barley, white pepper, black currant, fresh tobacco, soil, burnt sugar, dried yellow kiwi, and fuji apple

I highly recomend this coffee on this as it brings out more of the tropical notes and gives a smooth and creamy texture
