  • Caramel fragrance, cherry in aroma, flavors of butterscotch, caramel and rose with a smooth aftertaste that leaves a lingering cinnamon note. Mellow orange acidity and a syrupy body all come together to bring a really well balanced cup profile.
  • Best at the darker end of a light roast up to a full dark roast. The coffee has a great range and excellent sweetness. Stands out on its own, but would also fortify any blend with sweetness and body.

After the coffee has been “semi-washed”, the parchment is intentionally left in a fermentation tank with no water for 8-12 hours before finally making its way to the raised drying beds, where Don Mario slows the speed of drying down to 15-20 days on the beds. This complex drying process brings out a lot of depth in what we would normally think of as a “washed” coffee! The heavy body and mild acidity, combined with the sweet profile makes for great espresso or a solid base for blends.

Don't do a light roast of this bean. This was my first roast of it and it wasn't good at this light of a roast.
