Flavor Notes: Honeydew Melon, Nectarine, Peach
Washed Process - Light Roast
Heights coffee estate is located in the ring of Ngorongoro crater in Karatu Area, about 150 kms North of Arusha city. The coffee is grown on dark volcanic soil, which is ideal for coffee due to the high mineral content.
We have found this coffee to have dense sweetness and bright refreshing acidity. The honeydew melon flavor takes the back seat as the cup cools and that’s when the sweet nectarine and peach flavor dominate the cup. The acidity pops but isn’t mouth turning, we kept the development on the roast pretty short to really highlight the sweetness which turned the peach flavor into almost a peaches and cream flavor becoming almost dessert like but with the brightness of a fresh super ripe peach picked at peak harvest.
Currently our shop’s favorite new coffee, we are super excited about this fresh crop African coffee and can’t wait for you to sit down with a mug and enjoy it!
