Tasting Notes: Sweet, rich & medium-bodied with a mellow acidity; blueberry and floral characteristics with a subtle boozy note.
Last year marked the first time Muungano coffee was processed using the Natural method which has enhanced the fruity characteristics of the Muungano coffee, bringing in some vibrant blueberry characteristics and a note of booziness (likely well appreciated by wine drinkers). Rich in body and sweetness, enjoy this coffee either black or with milk.
