This is the Cascadia African Blend brought to you by Case Coffee Roasters. Coffees from Ethiopia and Kenya were carefully chosen and blended together to create a unique harmony of flavors that are greater than the sum of its parts. This blend is great for brewing as filter or as espresso, with rich notes of dark fruits, spices and caramel.
Well rounded. Strong and bold flavor profile without the acidity I'd expect. Worked well as an espresso and pour over was good as well.
What was your first impression? Very accurate description. Did you like the roast (level of bean darkness)? Yes
What flavors did you like or dislike (chocolatey, fruity, citrus, earthy)? Liked all of them individually, least favorite note I liked was the citrus. The other flavors complimented it in this case, but i don't think I'd like it individually. Did the coffee have characteristics you liked (balanced, nuanced, smooth, bold) or didn’t like (sour, burnt, roasty)? Very smooth.
