Passion House Coffee Roasters

This months Angel’s Cup coffee subscription service comes from Passion House Coffee Roasters.  The beans come from Rwanda’s Lake Kivu Kanza.  As I open the bag, an aroma of licorice, cherry, and hints of raisin(?) greets me.  I don’t think I’ve ever tasted beans from Rwanda.  So this bag will be a nice change to see if a different African region will have a slightly different profile.

After grinding the beans, the licorice aroma is much stronger and a cocoa aroma emerges as well.  This smell is actually pretty addicting.  I caught myself sniffing the ground beans a couple times to enjoy that aroma.

Brewing my latte, the licorice and chocolate flavor becomes the dominant taste in the first few sips.  I also taste some cherry and raisins as well.  Surprisingly, I don’t get that strong earthy nutty taste typical of many of the previous coffee beans I’ve gotten.  However, I do taste this nutty flavor in the aftertaste.  This is an extremely smooth coffee that drinks very quickly.
