This coffee thinks it’s an Orange Cognac. From your first sip, you’ll taste cherries and oranges culminating into a complex dance of dried fruits and oaky spice. The result is a cup that tastes sweet, savory, and sparkly...like an orange cognac cocktail.
As the story goes, the name Horse Well comes from a local legend about a magical horse that sprang from the town's well. Funny enough, this rare and sparkly roast from Myanmar might actually be a coffee unicorn. Myanmar, once known as Burma, sits on the Bay of Bengal in SE Asia, and its 200-year-old coffee industry has been quietly flourishing. Brews from Myanmar turn heads because they sit within the sweet spot between African and Indonesian profiles. Myanmar coffees are full of fruit, like Africans, paired with an earthy complexity like Sumatrans. When naturally-processed, they're often rich and syrupy in texture, with clean and distinct flavors, and a unique, cider-like sparkle.
This roast hails from the Shan State in Myanmar, known for its fantastic naturally-processed coffees and small, independent farm communities. Complex and sophisticated, but oh-so sippable. You may want to change your bathrobe out for a smoking jacket, as this cup brings a touch of cocktail hour into coffee hour. Reserve a fresh bag from the next batch!
