TEST RESULTS


I gotta say, Brad at Urban Grind's is killing it! This new Single Origin is extremely addictive! I went through the first bag so fast that I didn't take any photos or video. I had to go back and pick up a second bag so I could document it properly. This coffee is loaded with the taste of chocolate covered raisins. It completely reminds me of Raisinets candy. In addition it has extremely complex and subtle notes of lemon lime, and a slight nutty peanut taste. The finish ends with a combination of sweet brown sugar and English toffee. They're really outdone themselves with this one!
