TEST RESULTS

I've previously tested quite a few coffees from Wonderstate (previously known as Kickapoo Coffee), and they continue to impress me! I love naturally processes Ethiopian coffees and Wonderstate has done an incredible job with this one. This coffee is packed with juicy blueberry notes with a crisp lemon twist at the end. This coffee would be great with just those two components alone. On top of the juicy fruitiness there is a delicate floral jasmine element that adds a nuanced dimension that opens up a whole new world of flavors. This coffee is excellent as an espresso and as a pour over. My preferred pour over brew method for this coffee is the Hario V60.
