Mexico Chiapas San Fernando Altura
An easy drinking coffee, the aroma is like fresh oatmeal cookie with brown sugar cane and pie crust. Dare we say even freshly baked pumpkin bread? The cup is light loam, hot milk chocolate with a touch of brown sugar melded together on a silky body. The finish lingers into notes of oaky, charred bourbon barrel.
