June’s Angels Cup are Burundi beans from Manzanita Roasting Company. One benefit of these monthly coffee bags is that I’m starting to learn some of the locations of these countries in Africa. Although it is a small region of Kenya, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Burundi. Most of the beans that have arrived originate from Ethiopia.
The beans release a faint floral and fruity aroma upon opening the bag. Making my latte, I taste this subtle cocoa flavor that changes to this wonder earthy nutty flavor at the back of my tongue. What’s interesting is with each sip, that cocoa flavor becomes more intense. The flavor is similar to that lingering taste after eating chocolate and peanut butter (like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup).
