OKLAO Specialty Coffee

Another bag of beans from Taiwan’s OKLAO’s Specialty Coffee that appear to be from Yunlin which is another region of Taiwan but also near the mountainous Ali Shan region. These beans do not have that “ferment-ish” aroma that the first bag from OKLAO had. They had the more typical fruity and flowery aroma.

Making my latte, I taste a very ashy/minerally flavor similar to Hawaii’s Kona coffee beans. I also taste slight fruitiness after getting past the ashiness. Compared to the previos OKLAO beans, these have a much more straight forward flavor profile that I enjoy.
