An exceptionally sweet and delicate cup with all the rich, fruity flavor you’d expect from a natural. We taste soft strawberry icing, rose water, and a honey-like finish. Spring into the new year: it’s brewing up to be a rosy one.

"It wasn't terrible, but it also wasn't great. The fruit taste was strong in this one. When you smell it, it DEFINITELY smells like raisins. I had my boyfriend try it, who frankly drinks whatever coffee I give him...usually he finishes his cup, this time he did not."

"I feel like I say this every time I try a new coffee, but I can truthfully say this jumped into my top 2 after my first cup. I feel like it got a little sweetness from the fruit rather than the acidity of the fruit, and the fruity notes are not overbearing at all. Will definitely be buying again! "

"A lovely Costa Rican coffee with a sweet finish and quite fruity. I brewed it as an espresso as well as a pourover. Nice strawberry notes.."

"I am not a big fan of the fruitier tasting notes. That said I did enjoy the strawberry finish. It's not for me, but if you like the lighter blends, this is a good choice."

"Smells awesome, unfortunately the taste leaves a little to be desired. It isn't undrinkable, but the light flavor is just a little plain for my tastes."

"Not a fan. Flavors, in my opinion, did not mix well together. Had one cup and threw away the rest."

"So fruity! Unfortunately, I don't like fruity coffees so this was a no go for me. But if you do, this is definitely for you! "

"It was a very sweet light blend that I normally wouldn't have tried, but I'm glad I did. "

"A seriously fruity coffee. When you grind it up for the first time the whole room smells like kiwi, and the smell translates directly to the taste. Best in a french press, but drip comes in as a close second. "

"Very light, sweet taste. You really can smell golden raisins while the pot of coffee is brewing."

"Wow...What a great light roast! I brewed it in the chemex and really got the fruitiness with a smooth, sweet finish. This didn't disappoint."

"I loved this coffee! Very uniquely sweet, the notes of raisin were very present, especially as the cup cooled. This coffee is best prepared in a chemex. "

"In my opinion this is one of the worst samples we have received. Just not good, but we generally prefer darker roasts. "
