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.

"A fruity, slightly citrusy flavor. Nicely clean, smooth, and bright."

"a really unique blend of flavors. one of the better that i've had but doesn't completely stand out. "

"Decent, but not a standout to me. I now know I prefer natural over washed. "

"This was a very fruity coffee which we found to be pretty acidic. It was OK but not one I would order again."

"The smell is grassy enveloping comfort. The coffee has low-moderate viscosity. Moderate acidity with moderate fruity citrus lemon and lime. Moderate sweetness. Some moderate bitterness initially which comes down as it cools. Hints of dark chocolate."

"Another favorite of mine! Smooth coffee right here. I especially love the sweeter side of it. The caramel and apricot just compliment each other so well in this roast. "

"This coffee was very average tasting, so not worth the high cost."

"Very smooth, bright roast, perfect for a morning cup. "
