Tasting notes : 

 Whats special? Its White wine process.

Not as literal as it sounds but its a natural process where cherries are fremented for extended period of time under controlled environment. 

 

This coffee as much as i hate to say it, its definately complex and balanced. In a good way. Let me explain. 

 

At first sip, this coffee reminds me of a chardonnay. White notes dominates, till it reaches around 55°c, purple and brown notes starts to appear. Dark cherries, red wine (Cabernet), dark cherries, raisins and palm sugar. Medium body. Medium acidity. Has a medium-high sweetness and medium long 60% dark chocolate finish. Overall something for both fruity lovers and balanced lovers.
