This bag of coffee beans is technically the January Angels Cup delivery. It’s from Manzanita Roasting Company which is located down in San Diego. The beans themselves are from Costa Rica.
When I first opened the bag, I got a strong whiff of that greek yogurt/earthy aroma. It’s similar to the Angels Cup geisha beans from before. I can’t seem to describe it any way else. Until I find a better descriptor, yogurt-like aroma is what I’ll have to stick with.
Making my latte, that same aroma was even more intense with the first sip. But disappears with each subsequent sip. The chocolaty, nutty flavor emerges after that first sip. This flavor evolves into a subtle berry after taste that lingers on the tongue.
