Bean Box Breakdown

Close your eyes, and imagine yourself reclining on a cloud of nougat, while lemon and apricot cherubs sing around you. This roast in a word: heavenly.

True North Coffee Roasters Story

The acidy and body are wrapped together. We find sweet caramel and apricot in the acidity/body combination and a pleasant sparkle of lemon in the finish.
