Cupping Notes: Lemon, White Grape, Juicy Roast level 01: Light
On the first sip, you are greeted with a punchy, yet approachable citrus-forward flavor that transitions to refreshing notes of white grape which carries throughout the cup. This is accompanied by a juicy palette experience to create a vibrant and sweet coffee. We recommend giving this a try on the Chemex. (Check out our brewing guide)
