THE GREEN BEANS
The Bluish Green beans with none of category 1 or category 2 defect.
No foreign order detected and the clean smell of green coffee.
THE ROASTED BEANS
No Quakers on cupping roast.
We found coffee as pleasing all day coffee. Our cuppers found some herbal notes, bright acidity and a full body mouthfeel.
A good coffee for specialty roasters and blenders.
