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.
