Due to unfortunate circumstances the Irish Brewers Cup 2018 competition will be postponed until May 2018.

If anybody would like to support me or just watch the 20 competitors, please don’t be shy and join us at Bailies Coffee Roasters in Belfast.

Tasting notes:

The coffee is very complex. It has a pronounced aroma of Dark Plums followed by Blackcurrants, Carmel, and Hibiscus. Have a lively acidity balanced by a good level of sweetness. In the taste, you will find the same Plums, tannins like from Red Cherries but also Mulberry and some hint of Hazelnuts. This coffee has a medium, round body (so characteristic for African coffees), sparkling mouthfeel and leaves a great, long aftertaste with Blackcurrant, Hibiscus notes, and some black tea hits.
