The aroma coming from the cup is sweet, baked, berry fruit pie. On that first sip there is the berry forward flavor that reminds one of fermented fruit jam with a caramelized brown sugar topping. The mild acidity is like Thompson seedless grapes. The overall mouthfeel is slippery, syrupy and super smooth. If you love berries you'll love this amazing coffee! What a wonderful experience!
