This medium-roasted coffee is clean, smooth with cocoa and praline flavors with an herbal aftertaste.

This coffee is soft in taste, with an apricot sweetness, notes of bergamot, and some background toffee sweetness. We roasted this one carefully and took it to 416 degrees before dropping it, calling it cinnamon to medium roast (or a light-medium roast).
