TEST RESULTS


I really had a great time testing out this coffee from Dark Ritual Coffee Roasters. I've been drinking a ton of Ethiopian Naturals lately and it was nice switching things up with this Washed Colombian. This coffee has a sweet honey and strawberry base to it that is great by itself. However, it has a twist of something unique that really pushes it over the top. Along with the honey and strawberry it has a Lulo Jam flavor. The Lulo fruit is native to Colombia. It looks almost like a small Orange but with a smooth skin that has tiny little hairs on it. It is a yellowish orange color on the outside while the pulp is bright green on the inside. It has an extra tart orange citrus like flavor. It is commonly used in Colombia to make Ice Cream, Sauce, Juice, and Jam. In this coffee it comes across more like a jam flavor. It does have a tart pop to it, but it also has an intense sweetness as well.
