"Coffee was on the sweet side as advertised. I was looking forward to more of an angel cake taste, but enjoyed the subtle fruit notes. Overall, this coffee did not disappoint."

"This is one of my favorite coffees. If you pour it perfectly, it really tastes like a strawberry. If you are not a fan of fruity coffees however, you will definitely not like this one. Highly recommended!"

"Has been my favorite of all sent so far, couldn’t put the cup down. "

""Aromatic strawberry bomb" is exactly right. Expect the coffee to taste like deliciously tart fruit jam while it's hot, and as it cools for it to open up into a sweeter more syrupy fruit flavor. It's a fantastic light roast, a perfect expression of modern coffee, and is great on aeropress and v60. "

"It’s not bad, but the taste wasn’t for me. I found it to have an earthy somewhat dirty taste as it cooled. It’s pleasantly acidic that lingers on your palate like collard greens. Adding sugar made the bitterness last shorter but I wouldn’t recommend for a morning coffee. "

"What a FANTASTIC addition to the Slate line-up! This coffee tastes like straight-up chocolate covered strawberry! "

"This is my new favorite from Slate Coffee Roasters. The cup has a very tannic mouthfeel to it, as the initial sips of this coffee tasted similar to Merlot. As the cup cools, the cocoa powder and strawberry are really felt. I used a chemex to brew these beans. This roast is also great for cold brew!"

"I gave this bag as a gift to my Mom. She loves the flavor but had no words to describe it. "

"Definitely more on the chocolate side than fruity, so if you like chocolate you'll enjoy a cup of this Coffee! "

"Slate Coffee Roasters Kilenso Ethiopia brews a beautifully complex, pleasantly juicy cup. One of my personal favorites discovered from my light roast Sample Subscription. From the first drop to the last, very consistent, fruity, chocolate and a true experience."
