TEST RESULTS


As I'm sure everyone knows by now, I am a massive fan of Counter Culture coffee! Once again they've out done themselves. This coffee is ridiculously juicy and sweet! It reminds me of the Jujube candy in a box you get at the movie theater. The orange acidity hits the sides of your mouth first, but then the sweet raspberry like aspects of the blood orange overpower that acidity right away. The blueberry notes are intensely sweet and juicy and blend perfectly with the raspberry blood orange. I destroyed this entire bag in just a few days. I jumped back and forth between espresso and pour over and before I knew it, the bag was completely gone. This is definitely a coffee I will be purchasing again in the near future!
