This is a bonus coffee bag that I bought from a recent trip. It’s a collaboration between Caffe Vita Coffee Roasting and Theo Chocolate. I’m not sure what prompted the collaboration but it was worth trying. Chocolate has been known to go well with coffee.
This is blend of various coffees from Indonesia, Central America and South America. When I first opened the bag, I got very strong chocolate, earthy, nutty aromas. It reminds me of the type of aromas you might smell from Kona coffee as well. From the website, I have no idea what “fruit leather or cigar box” would even smell like.
After making my latte, the first sip always surprises me. It honestly tastes similar to when I make my latte using Kona beans. The chocolate flavors hits my tongue first followed by hints of intermingling berry flavors with each sip. There is also a slight bitterness with each sip but it varies from day to day. The level of bitterness also varies with the level of nutty aftertaste that lingers at the back of the tongue as well.
Anyways, I’m pretty satisfied with this blend. It’s a different flavor profile than the usual single origin beans that I get from Angels cup. Next up is the November offering.
