Roasting this low altitude coffee can be challenging. Being a natural process coffee adds another the challenge in roasting. The development time for this coffee is shorter than the usual espresso roast that we normally do. The coffee has an aroma of orange peel, almond biscuits and caramel. When sip, you can feel the flavour of oranges and sour juice topped with the aroma of hazelnut, roasted almond and caramel. The coffee contains its own sweetness and the acidity is balanced. Best as black as well as with milk.
