In 2012, Kahawa Link Company (Kalico) was created by two Burundi women to help produce and showcase the country’s finest coffees. This lot, from small local farms, is a tropical paradise of fruit flavors on a base of creamy chocolate.
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This is my first non-commercial, whole bean coffee purchase. (Had been drinking ground Folgers for years. And, just finished a 3-pound bag of Starbucks House Blend beans (which were very dark and oily, especially compared to this light roast).) I can taste the chocolate notes. But, the claimed orange and pineapple are a bit more difficult for my untrained palate to pick up. I think what is called “orange and pineapple” tastes like simple acidity to me. So either my palate isn’t sophisticated enough yet or I might’ve dialed in my grind a little too fine. That said, it’s delicious coffee and I had fun making it this morning.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This is my third time trying a coffee from Burundi and i was not disappointed. Very flavorful and tasty!|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ I’m a big fan of Burundi coffee so I had high expectations. It didn’t disappoint! Ladro’s taste notes were spot on and the citrus acidity, juicy sweetness, and chocolate finish make this my ideal daily drinker- bright and grounded. Highly recommend!|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ I just can't get 'into' citrus and coffee flavors. The pineapple came through, but, it was just weird.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Nice and light. The bourbon was lost on me a bit, but the citrusy note made for an enjoyable cup!|
