This coffee is really one of the highest quality, well-balanced coffee that we are roast, which produces fruits aroma with a soft pineapple flavor. It has a full taste with fruits notes. There is a citric grapefruit flavor with a pear sweetness and a lengthy aftertaste. An enjoyable coffee with a smooth finish that people want to return again and again.
