I’m slowly catching up. We’re finally in April’s Angels Cup offering. These Sunergos Coffee beans are from a small African nation called Burundi. Specifically, the beans are from Kabingo/Kibingo washing station in a northern province called Kayanza.
I would like to think that the beans haven’t changed too much while unopened in the original package. I will admit that newly roasted beans have a better aroma. When I opened this 3 months after receiving, I get a huge whiff of the floral hints, a subdued nutty flavor and something else I couldn’t quite pinpoint. Brewing my latte, I realized what it was I couldn’t pinpoint. It was this strong yogurt flavor similar to the Geisha beans from the Angels Cup Christmas Black Box. Although the flavor wasn’t as strong as the Geisha, it’s pretty noticeable. After a few sips though, the yogurt flavor melds into this soft nutty flavor.
