This is a fully washed,submerged under water, and sun-dried coffee using african bed drying tables instead of patios.

All interesting, but not as interesting as in the cup. Here we find a different cup to the Karatina, instead of all that sweetness, this has the typical red wine like acidity, with plums and white grape and a super clean and pleasing finish.

Roasting Information:
Just past first crack, maybe barely into second if you must, but this is a great medium roast coffee so don't spoil it.

"Quick Look" Guide:
Red wine, plums, white grape, super clean.

Good Filter: Yes, Good Espresso: No
