Madagascar Organic Robusta Screen size 14 plus fully washed raw coffee
Bright acidity, medium body, bold coffee flavor, buttery hints of malt chocolate, wood, whiskey, cherry tobacco, honey roasted nuts, strong lasting finish. I found this a bit rough for my taste (Donna really likes it) but it has just enough sweetness and a bold coffee flavor. Not scientifically tested but I also find it to have a heck of a Caffeine kick. You can drink this on it's own at any roast level but those who love it bold and dark should get the biggest kick out of this coffee. It may also be what you are looking for to make that special Dark blend. And, besides all that, where else are you going to find organic coffee from Madagascar? Oy Vey everybody!
