When I was deciding which coffees to order from Prosum I was influenced by my love of Ethiopian coffees of course, but this review from Patrick Z. really pushed me to buy this particular coffee.
I found it to have a lighter body with a bright, almost bubbly - happy acidity. I got a real "yellow fruit" vibe from this one. Think Lemons, maybe some peach. The aroma was sweet and fruity with a very light floral.
Like I've said, this is a happy coffee. It has that warm coffee taste, but not a "trapped under a thick blanket while it snows" warm. More of a "sit down and let's be friends" warm.
I did drink it at breakfast, but I found it to be an excellent working day coffee. Something to keep me going while I did the paperwork required to run my business.
It was an excellent choice for cold brew coffee milk. If you read the blog, you know I'm all sorts of into that right now. Also if you grind it into a Turkish Coffee fine powder and blend it into real vanilla ice cream with a dash of hot chocolate mix (don't judge) you can make a kind of coffee frosty. Works well for that. Lots of beans don't work on their own for treats or candy. This one did.
I meant to try it in a cold brew that didn't involve milk, but there are many coffee drinkers in my life, so that never happened.
I plan to stop by the actual cafe next time I drive to CA. I want a cup of "in person" coffee. :-) We almost always stop in Albuquerque on our way anyway. It's a good point for a rest. Just need to plan for a bit of extra time there and get a bit of extra caffeine in my system before the rest of the drive. I'll need it. It's 14 or 15 hours from Albuquerque to Monterey and the desert is BEAUTIFUL - for the first 4 hours.
