"Strong taste of cherry. I liked it alot, but not for everyone. light roast that is definitely unique and worth a try."

"This is a very unusual coffee. It's a very light roast with some of the biggest flavors Ive ever seen in this kind of roast. It is as juicy as it comes. Pomegranate, cherry, and to me, hints of lemon. Its absolutely bursts with fruit flavors."

"This brew is quite earthy tasting to me but it has a nice "acidity" note to it as well. "

"So great. I ground by hand with a burr grinder and made in my aeropress with heavy cream. The perfect sweet warm morning treat. The smell alone is delightful. A person might think that the lower cost beans are not as good, but this variety would prove them wrong. "

"This was good. Sweet and clean tasting, perfect as a black cup! "

"I am a huge pomegranate fan, so this was great! I could even have done with a stronger taste of it."

"Personally, I did not care for this coffee at all. It is very tart (almost to the point of making me pucker when I first tasted it). If you enjoy fruity coffees, then you will likely enjoy this one. It is just not my preference."

"Yummy brew held up to an espresso. Sweet notes were enjoyed. "

"Great light taste with cheery coming thru at the end. Great cup of coffee and you will enjoy it! "

"This cup tasted floral/herbaceous but not overly fruity. It's interested, clean, and light. Brewed cold with a v60 Fretta."

"Very light flavors with cherry shining through. Cup is muted though. v60 brewed."
