TEST RESULTS


Onyx Coffee has done it again! Tropical Weather is a massive fruitnado that is extremely addictive! I burned through my bag in no time, and wanted more instantly. The Pineapple and Mango are extremely sweet and hit you straight out the gate. Then the Peach Sweet Tea follows adding a killer juiciness. The floral notes from the wild honey flavor pop up here and there adding depth and complexity. It's an overall great coffee! Personally I wish the roast was a little lighter to add more of an acid pop to the pineapple and mango. However, it's quite possible that could have removed too much sweetness and ruined the overall balance. If you haven't tried this coffee yet you're missing out.
