Description

Another coffee from the city of Naranjo and the province of Alajuela. Naranjo coffees have a very definite honey taste to them, this one being no different. The big difference comes in the very pronounced floral brightness to it. I can't decided if its coffee blossom of its it's like a fruit tree blossom but lets just call it floral.

So summing up, in the cup sweet, sweet, sweet (do you recon its sweet) with big floral tones and lovely mouthfeel of honey and syrup.
