This coffee is raw with an average sieve 16 and the evaluation of defects, for 300 grams of coffee, is practically nil.
If toasted as an espresso (agtron 50-55, Italian) it forms a hazelnut cream with marked darker shades.
On the olfactory examination, there are very evident sensations of citrus, cardamom, tobacco and nutmeg; when sweetened, the coffee finds notes of candied citrus.
If roasted by filter and brewing (agtron 65-70, full city) this coffee can equally prove to be exceptional, elegant, and with truly wonderful notes of spices, cardamom, nutmeg and pepper. The acidity is marked, but it is a coffee to be enjoyed.
