The aroma is of carbon, smoldering oak, burnt sugar, grilled white grapefruit, white salt, leather, soil, toasted cocoa nib, prune, licorice root, cumin, hemp seed, toasted sesame seed, sumac, and black cherry

This is a smooth, and creamy textured coffee that has a very dry finish and a velvety coating

This is a medium acidity coffee with a distinct note of malic acid and a subtle hint of sweetness

The flavors of this coffee are of milk powder, soil, licorice root, black cardamom, muted cumin, toasted hemp seed, green apple, leather, soil, tobacco, clay, dried garlic, 

As it cools notes of dark chocolate develop along with a toasted macadamia nut but still has an undertone of soil

The Body is a light feel like of black tea with a velvety texture that is juicy

The acidity is mellow but is very dry and astringent with a lingering ashy finish and is dirty
