Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Balanced, richly sweet. Black cherry, almond, cedar, baker’s chocolate, magnolia in aroma and small cup. Full, satiny body; chocolaty, wood-framed finish. Dark chocolate notes lead the way in three parts milk, supported by notes of black cherry and almond.
Notes: A blend of green coffees produced by Finca El General in Acatenango, Guatemala and processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line : An easygoing single-origin Guatemala espresso, rich-toned, chocolaty and floral, both in the straight shot and in milk.
When customers ask us to recommend beans, the number one question is about flavor, and the number two is “Is this acidic?”
First of all, the feeling of the acidity varies from person to person. Once I met two guests. A said he would like to drink acid coffee, while B said he would not drink acid coffee. So I made a Natural Yirgacheffe Blue Donkey for them. A said that it was too acidic, and B said that it was okay. It is clear that there are individual differences in the sensitivity of acidity.
Since there are individual differences, is there any criterion for reference?
We generally use several fruits to make the evaluation from the least acidic to the most acidic. From 1~5 is strawberry jam, grapes, apples, oranges, lemons. So that the scores of relative acidity can help the consumers with a reference in purchasing.
