Silky and sugary, fragrant and fruit-punchy: this small-lot gem from San Vicente mill has tons of flavor for a washed coffee. Notes of fruit candy and florals combine into a fantastic, cocktail-like morning brew. It’ll knock your... slippers off!
We are bringing in Nelin Guzman's entire production of coffee for a second year in a row. Thanks to the drying and milling work of Benjamin Paz of the San Vicente mill in Santa Barbara, we are able to offer extraordinary coffees like Nelin Guzman's. This coffee impresses us with its big body and satiny texture. The fruit in the cup reminds us of the cherry and lime syrups you'd put over shave ice. The sweetness is condensed much like raw sugar is condensed to make panela. The coffee finishes with a botanical flavor much like aromatics released from a fine gin. We are head over heels for this cup and its complexity.
"The logo is what initially got me excited over this coffee - very cool! In coffee, floral and citrus notes aren't my favorite but it was still better than anything you can get off the shelf at your local grocery store. "
"Were not big on fruit or floral notes in the coffee, so not our kind of thing. But we know a lot of people who do like that, who would probably have loved it."
"If you're new to black coffee, this is a good blend. It has a lighter flavor than most and has its own sweet notes so as to not require creamer. Very impressed, but as a lighter, somewhat subtle roast it just doesn't merit a 5-bean review for flavor profile. "
"A Kuma favorite. This coffee has wonderful sweetness that is perfectly balanced with its fruity notes. "
