TEST RESULTS


The word "madcap" means unconventional, which is a great description of this coffee. Madcap's Party is a rotating selection of naturally processed coffees sourced from areas throughout Southern Ethiopia. This current version comes from Kayon Mountain Estate in Shakisso, Guji. It is an extremely berry forward coffee with bursts of tangerine and tropical fruits that give it a clean crisp pop. It's a party in your mouth packed full of fruit bursting juiciness! These are the kinds of coffees I really enjoy, both as a pour over and as an espresso.
