"For a morning cup of coffee not a bad way to start your day. Tried brewing it in my french press then in a pour over, which I favored because it seemed to bring out the chocolatey notes more. It is rich, yet very smooth as it cools a bit. Not a bad choice, but would enjoy some fruity notes."

"This blend is a very citrusy, bursting with sweet notes of caramel, molasses, lemon zest, and hints of cherry and chocolate. I definitely wouldn't define the main tasting note as chocolate, it's more of an after-taste. Light body and high acidity, similar to a light roast."
